There really is nothing so refreshing in the summer as watermelon, so of course, a slushy watermelon margarita is a perfect summer cocktail for a hot summer day. Or maybe even just a warm spring – thinking of summer – day.

Watermelon + Lime = Delicious

Is it too early to be posting about fun summer cocktails? No, right? It’s never too early. I found a delicious salted watermelon margarita recipe on the Bon Appetit page and it inspired me to do something similar – but slushy.

There is something about margaritas that just screams SUMMER! Although, let’s be honest, margaritas are great all year long. This slushy margarita made with watermelon and lime juice is particularly perfect for summer – because – watermelon! Growing up, I was never a fan of watermelon. It’s just so messy. But watermelon, in a blender, with tequila – I am in. I am pretty sure I never met a tequila drink I didn’t like.

This margarita is so easy to make. All you need are chunks of watermelon, some lime, ice cubes, tequila, and triple sec. Yep. Easy peasy.

Adjust the recipe as needed – if your watermelon is super ripe and very sweet, you won’t need to add any sugar to the blender. However, if you feel like your margarita needs a little bit of sweet, add some simple syrup, or just a tablespoon or two of sugar.
