Watermelon tequila skewers are insanely fun and refreshing! The zing of the alcohol watermelon combo will impress everyone.


  • 4 cups cubed ripe seedless watermelon (about 2 1/2 pounds or 1/4 medium melon)
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) tequila*
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint, plus more leaves for garnish


  1. Place the watermelon in a large bowl and sprinkle with the lime juice, tequila and chopped mint. Toss until well coated.
  2. Place in a covered container and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour and up to 1 day (it’s best when it’s freshest).
  3. To serve, place watermelon chunks on cocktail picks or short skewers. If you’d like, use a cocktail shaker to strain the remaining juice from the bottom of the container into shot glasses, to be enjoyed along with the watermelon!


*You can also make these Watermelon Skewers without the tequila or do half without the tequila, as a non-alcoholic option for kids!
