My favorite summer drink hands down is fresh watermelon juice. No wait, I meant to say margaritas. Oh but, the juice is so refreshing... but summer needs tequila... WAIT! There's no need to decide is there? How about watermelon margaritas served IN mini watermelons. Yes, as I was saying, watermelon margaritas are my favorite summer drink...

Step 1: Supplies


mini watermelons (one per drink - I got mine at Safeway)
2 tbsp lime syrup (make this first so it has time to cool)

  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water

2 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tbsp triple sec liqueur
1/2 cup 100% agave tequila (I used Espolon)
1 lime wedge
course salt


sharp chef's knife
cutting board
medium sized mixing bowl
immersion blender
measuring spoons and cups
zest grater
citrus juicer
small saucepan
small sieve
fun wide straws
