Watermelon Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo

watermelon margarita recipe

This weekend was so great and relaxing! We had one day that was really hot and today was so nice and cool! My favorite times as a family are simply just playing in the backyard. I worked in the garden, re-stained part of the wood fence, and watched the kids play. Tonight I made my husband and I some watermelon margs to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, while he was out picking up dinner from a local Mexican place 🙂 So nice to not cook….

I like this drink because it’s not as sweet as a strawberry flavor and something different than a normal sweet and sour margarita…refreshing!

Watermelon Margaritas 

by Lina Darnell

Makes 2 large servings

Blend together with ice:

-2 cups watermelon minus the seeds

-2 shots of Tequila

1/2 shot Grand Marnier

1/4 cup Blue Agave Sweetener

juice of two limes

+Garnish with salted rim and mint leaves if desired

This is my favorite Cinco de Mayo glass! It was from a great restaurant I worked at as a server in college while attending NAU. It was the type of small family owned place where we wrote out paper tickets, bused our own tables, and made our own drinks at the bar. The food was amazing and my best friend and I worked there together so it was a blast and brings back memories! HA

We don’t have a pool or access to a community pool anymore, so here we go with the next best thing! ha

  1. O.K., you had me at Margarita, but a watermelon one! I have never heard of that, but I definitely will try one!!
    I live in Georgia, so watermelons are plentiful in the summer. Cannot wait!
