These Salted Watermelon Margaritas are the most refreshing way to cool down this summer! With just 4 healthy ingredients (and a frozen slushie option), you can easily beat the heat in style. Whole food ingredients in a party-ready cocktail, alcohol optional, and ready in just 10 minutes!
I’ve always enjoyed making cocktails myself. While bars are fun, it’s very easy to spend way too much money on something that you may not even enjoy. I believe that drinking at home saves money but also allows for creative experiments!
You definitely don’t need a bar cart stocked with fancy liquors to whip up a very special beverage. With bars closed this year due to quarantine, I know people are more open than even to at-home experimentations. Additionally, I know my friends and family on the East coast are in the middle of a major heat wave. So, what could be more refreshing than a frozen salted watermelon margarita? Let’s get into it!
What ingredients do you need for a margarita?
Typically, a traditional margarita is made with tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau or Triple Sec. As you can guess, we’re straying a bit from the traditional path for this recipe in the name of accessibility and the refreshing summertime flavor of watermelon.
How to Make a Watermelon Margarita
It’s important to me to create recipes that did not require many ingredients. Like always, I want to publish posts that easily adapted to your home kitchen.
First, we’ll begin by blending the watermelon with lime and (optionally) straining it. Next, we’ll sweeten to taste; the amount of sweetener depending on how ripe your fruit is. Also, if you like frozen cocktails now is the time we’ll blend in some ice!
Finally, we’ll pour into glasses and top off with tequila or sparkling water. Start to finish in 10 minutes, I swear.
