It’s no secret that I have a love for margaritas, in any incarnation. Here’s another one to add to the list! Watermelon margaritas. They’re a bit reminiscent of an agua fresca – the epitome of light, fruity freshness. But, you know, with tequila.

I added a splash of Triple Sec to the recipe, as I don’t feel right calling something a margarita without a) lime or b) Triple Sec. I loved the use of the orange simple syrup, it was delicious and added some complexity to the simple sweetness of the melon. With summer just around the corner, we’ll all have wedges of watermelon stashed away in our refrigerators and coolers. This is a fabulous and fun way to use it!

    sure wish i could have one of these….
    stupid diet! 🙁

    Good call on the simple syrup, too. I imagine it was a great compliment to the sweet watermelon.

    I make these, although I’ve realized I can only make them in punchbowl quantities.
    I use lime juice, a splash of orange juice, tequila, triple sec and then add watermelon juice until it’s pink enough. I’ve tried juicing watermelons every which way, I think the easiest way is to skip the blender step and just strain through a colander or the like. I’ve also discovered you can freeze watermelon juice!

    Looks like a great drink to serve for an outdoor party.

    I popped over from Confections of a Bride. That looks and sounds so yummy. I am also a margarita lover.
