Looking for a cool and refreshing way to beat the heat this summer? Look no further than our Frozen Watermelon Margaritas! This delightful blend of juicy watermelon, zesty lime, and a splash of tequila is the perfect drink to keep your happy vibes going strong. So grab your blender, some fresh ingredients, and let’s make this summer sensation!


  • 4 cups of seedless watermelon, cubed and frozen
  • 1/2 cup tequila (silver or reposado)
  • 1/4 cup triple sec or Cointreau
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2-3 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup or agave nectar (adjust to taste)
  • Ice cubes (optional, for extra thickness)
  • Lime wedges and watermelon slices (for garnish)
  • Coarse salt or sugar (for rimming the glasses)


  • Freeze the Watermelon: Start by cutting a seedless watermelon into cubes and freezing them for at least 2-3 hours, or until solid. This will give your margaritas a thick, slushy texture.
  • Prepare the Glasses: Before blending, rim your margarita glasses with lime juice and dip them into coarse salt or sugar. This adds a fun and tasty touch to your drinks.
  • Blend the Margarita: In a blender, combine the frozen watermelon cubes, tequila, triple sec (or Cointreau), fresh lime juice, and simple syrup (or agave nectar). Blend until smooth. If you prefer a thicker consistency, add a handful of ice cubes and blend again.
  • Taste and Adjust: Taste your margarita mixture and adjust the sweetness or tartness to your liking by adding more simple syrup or lime juice as needed.
  • Serve: Pour the frozen watermelon margaritas into the prepared glasses. Garnish with lime wedges and watermelon slices for a festive touch.
  • Enjoy: Sip, relax, and enjoy the refreshing taste of summer in a glass. Cheers to an unforgettable Taco Tuesday!

Pro Tips:

  • For an extra kick, add a splash of watermelon liqueur or a few fresh mint leaves to the blender.
  • If you don’t have time to freeze the watermelon, you can use fresh watermelon and add more ice cubes to achieve the slushy texture.
  • To make a non-alcoholic version, simply omit the tequila and triple sec, and blend the watermelon with lime juice, a bit of water, and sweetener to taste.

Frozen Watermelon Margaritas are the perfect way to cool down and add a splash of fun to your Taco Tuesday celebrations and summer barbeques.
