Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cup cubed watermelon, seeds removed
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cucumber (~4 in), peeled
  • 6 oz. tequila (~2/3 cup)
  • 3 ounces Grand Marnier (OR other orange liqueur)

To Serve:

  • Ice
  • 4 (10 oz.) glasses
  • margarita salt, watermelon slices, mint

Instructions

  • Rub squeezed lime across the top of 4 classes and roll the rim in salt to cover the rim.

On the Rocks Margaritas

  • Puree the watermelon, lime juice, and cucumber together in a blender until smooth.
  • Strain puree through a fine kitchen strainer over a bowl to remove the pulp.
  • Add ice to your glasses. Pour 1 1/2 ounces of tequila and 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier into each of the prepared glasses.

Frozen Margaritas

  • Chop your watermelon and add to a baking sheet lined in parchment paper. Freeze for up to 6 hours or overnight until firm. Puree with the rest of the margarita ingredients until smooth and serve.

Notes

  • Both fresh and frozen watermelon can be used for this recipe. If you want to make frozen margaritas, chop your watermelon and add to a baking sheet in a single layer. Freeze for up to 6 hours or overnight. Puree with the rest of the margarita ingredients until smooth and serve.
  • English cucumbers are best for this recipe as they have essentially no seeds and puree smoother in the blender.
  • Keep a few mint leaves on hand for a pretty garnish to finish off these summery margaritas. Trust me, you'll want to make these cucumber watermelon margaritas a few times before this summer is over. 
  • Want to make these margaritas a little sweeter? Add about 1 oz of simple syrup to the blender before blending.
