Watermelon Margaritas


Watermelon cubes, (if desired)


10 – 11 lime wedges

3 cups Triple Sec or other orange liqueur

2 – 3 cups tequila

1 ½ cups freshly squeezed lime juice

1 cup superfine sugar or powdered sugar

5 cups seedless watermelon, chopped


Step 1

If desired, freeze cubes of watermelon on a waxed paper-lined tray for 1 to 2 hours or until firm.

Step 2

Place salt on a small plate. Rub rims of eight glasses with one of the lime wedges. Dip rims of glasses in salt to coat; set aside.

Step 3

In a pitcher combine Triple Sec, tequila, lime juice, and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved.

Step 4

Pour 1/4 cup of tequila mixture into blender or food processor with chopped watermelon (working in batches if necessary). Cover and blend or process until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Combine watermelon juice with remaining tequila mixture. Stir. Chill until ready to serve.

Step 5

Place frozen watermelon cubes, if using, in salt-rimmed glasses. Pour tequila mixture over watermelon cubes. Garnish with remaining lime wedges.
