Last Saturday, as we walked through the parking lot on our way into the grocery store, both my boys said “Mom, Mom, Moooooom, can we get a watermelon?” They had both fixed their eyes on a large display of watermelons, and who am I do deny them the quintessential fruit of the summer? 😉 The problem with watermelons? They tend to be huge and often times there is more watermelon than anyone cares to eat. If you ever find yourself in that situation, I have the perfect solution for you. Or you might not have leftover watermelon, but you are looking for a cold, refreshing, easy, 4 ingredient adult beverage. If that’s case, I’ve got you covered too. Meet my 4 ingredient Frozen Watermelon Margarita. It’s soooo easy to make, tastes cold and refreshing, and c’mon it’s summer!! Whip up a batch, kick your feet up and pretend you’re on a tropical island.
The main ingredient in these margaritas is frozen watermelon chunks. Another bonus to this recipe is that all of the ingredients keep for quite some time. Toss your limes in the fridge, watermelon in the freezer and you’ve got all you need for frozen margaritas any day of the week. You will NOT go back to those premade margarita mixes once you know how easy and delicious it is to make your own! We enjoyed these babies while our boys ran around and played soccer in the backyard and we watched, leaning back in our adirondack chairs, cocktail time ready. Do you want another awesome fact about this recipe? Of course you do! -If you leave out the liquor, it’s a fun drink to share with your kids too! A win-win for everyone!
Go on, whip these up and take in all that Summer has to offer. Cheers!
Ingredients: Makes 4 margaritas
4 shots of tequila
2 shots of triple sec
3 cups frozen watermelon cubes
1 cup ice
- Roughly cut up chunks of watermelon and place on a baking sheet. Put them in the freezer until they are frozen throughout.
- Place the limes, tequila, triple sec, and watermelon in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the ice and blend again until smooth. Taste and adjust as desired. I don’t like sweet margaritas, but if you do, you may want to add some simple syrup to this recipe. If you prefer a thicker frozen margarita add more watermelon and or ice.
- Pour into a salted rim glass (or skip this step) and enjoy. Fun straws and mint garnish are completely optional 🙂
