Frozen Watermelon Margarita

September is upon us, which means that the last few days of summer are winding down. My favorite summertime snack is anything watermelon, and the number of watermelons I bought this summer is crazy. This frozen watermelon margarita is the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer!

Margaritas are great, because they only require a few simple ingredients to taste amazing! Instead of ice, I used frozen watermelon cubes to give this a nice summery taste. Freezing the watermelon beforehand is the key to these margaritas, so make sure you plan ahead when making them. To freeze, lay out the watermelon cubes on a baking sheet and leave in the freezer for at least 4 hours. I used plastic wrap on the baking sheet for easier clean up.

The watermelon I used was super sweet, so I didn’t add any sugar to the margaritas themselves. If your watermelon isn’t very sweet, you might want to add a little simple syrup or sugar, depending on your preferences. Since there wasn’t any added sugar, I thought a sugar rim would go well with these.
