This watermelon margarita is tangy, sweet, and seriously refreshing. Instead of salting the rim, it’s lightly salty for a perfectly balanced flavor. 



  • 6 cups cubed seedless ripe watermelon, chilled, enough for 3 cups juice
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup lime juice, plus lime slices for garnish (5 limes)
  • 1 cup tequila reposado
  • 1/2 cup ice


  1. Add the watermelon cubes to a blender and blend until a juice forms. Then pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer into a clean container.
  2. Measure out 3 cups of the watermelon juice, then add it back to the blender. Add the lime juice, tequila, and ice and blend until fully
  3. Serve immediately over ice, or chill for several hours* and serve over ice. Garnish with lime slices.


*We preferred the chilled version, so make this a few hours in advance if possible.
