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.
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 2-3 limes
- 2 1/2 cups frozen watermelon cubes
- 3 ounces tequila
- Slice one of the limes into wedges, and slide the wedge around the rim of a glass. Spread the sugar on a small plate and dip the rim of the glass into the sugar until the rim is lightly coated.
- Juice the remaining limes. You'll need about 1/8 cup of lime juice.
- Add the watermelon cubes, lime juice, and tequila to a blender.
- Mix until the drink is smooth.
- Pour the drink into the glass and enjoy!
- Yields 12 ounces.
