Watermelon margarita

A watermelon margarita is a refreshing and delicious summer cocktail. The history of the watermelon margarita is a bit of a mystery, but it is thought to have originated in Mexico. The first written record of a watermelon margarita recipe was in a bartender’s guide from the early 1970s.

The popularity of the watermelon margarita has grown in recent years, thanks in part to the popularity of watermelon as a summer fruit. Watermelon margaritas are a perfect summertime drink, as they are refreshing and easy to make.

There are many different ways to make a watermelon margarita. The most popular way is to blend watermelon, lime juice, tequila, and ice in a blender. Some recipes also call for the addition of Triple Sec or other liqueurs.


If you're looking to make a delicious and refreshing watermelon margarita, here's some advice for you. Start by gathering fresh watermelon, lime juice, sugar, tequila, and ice. To ensure the best flavor, try to use fresh watermelon, as the frozen variety can often be too watery. If you don't have fresh limes, you can use lime juice from a bottle, just make sure to adjust the sugar accordingly. When it comes to tequila, use a higher quality brand for a more flavorful drink. To make the drink, blend the watermelon, lime juice, and sugar until smooth, then add the tequila and blend again. Finally, pour the mixture into a pitcher filled with ice and enjoy!
