What’s In Our Watermelon Margarita?

This recipe only consists of only a few ingredients and is easy to prepare in your kitchen bar. Enjoy the sweet, sour, and smooth flavors of this watermelon margarita made with these ingredients.

  • Tequila Blanco – Tequila is usually used in creating cocktails such as Margaritas for its citrusy notes. Tequila Blanco, one that is used in this recipe, is an un-aged tequila giving you a smooth, earthy, and sweet taste.
  • Lime Juice – Apart from combating the bitterness of alcohol, lime juice also give cocktails the zesty aroma and taste. Its peels are also grated into the salt used to line the rims of your glasses. 
  • Seedless Watermelon – The star of our glass. Watermelon is the epitome of refreshment on a hot summer’s day. Aside from the pop of color, it is the component that sweetens and gives your margarita its fruity taste. With the watermelon puree, it makes this margarita a little more surprising with those slightly crunchy bits!

Pair this cocktail drink with Mexican Corn (Elote). This grilled dish works wonders with our mildly sweet and sour watermelon blended alcohol. The fresh and citrusy flavors of Cilantro Lime Shrimp works great too with this cool drink.

  • Cucumber – Simply submerge a piece or two on your tequila to add some flavor to your base or main liquor. You can also use this as garnishing. Cucumber has a mild and sweet taste that blends well with fresh watermelon.
  • Hot Bell Pepper – Spice up your margarita drink by adding some grated peppers to the rim of kosher salt, making the after-taste of the drink tangy and salty. You can also submerge pepper slices in your glass before mixing in the liquid ingredients for a spicy kick. 
  • Mint – Place your mint leaves in your glass before pouring your tequila. This twist will give your drink a soothing cool and menthol flavor. Plus, it adds color to your drink.
