Watermelon Margaritas

Watermelon Margaritas

Now this is a taste treat that can only be beaten by having another favorite fruit.  If you like watermelon or even if you don’t, this is  must try at least once.  With the orange-flavored liqueur it’s like a fruit bowl in a glass.  If you don’t want the alcohol use orange juice or your favorite for additional flavoring. YUM!!


2 cups watermelon chunks, seeded
4 oz. tequila
1 oz. Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Ice cubes as needed
Salt, to taste (optional)
2 lime wedges (optional)
2 lime slices

In a blender, combine the watermelon, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and ice cubes and puree until smooth.

Spread salt on a small, flat plate. Moisten the rims of 2 margarita glasses with the lime wedges and invert onto the plate of salt, then shake off any excess. Pour the watermelon margarita into the glasses and garnish each with a lime slice.

Be sure to use moderation with this or any alcohol.  Drink Responsibly!
