Made with fresh watermelon juice, lime juice, and silver tequila, these skinny watermelon margaritas are ultra refreshing and perfect for summer parties. Serve them in a pitcher or DIY watermelon keg and garnish with festive watermelon stars!
8 ounces watermelon juice (strained)
8 ounces silver tequila
4 ounces lime juice
If you want to eat the watermelon after juicing it, cut it into pieces and allow them to sit in a colander over a large bowl for a few hours. Once you have enough juice (1 cup will serve 4), pour it into a carafe using a funnel and a fine-mesh strainer to get rid of any excess pulp or seeds. Refrigerate and set aside.
If you don’t care about eating the watermelon, fill a blender about 3/4-way full with a seedless watermelon, working in batches, and blend until smooth. Pour pureed watermelon through a fine-mesh strainer to get rid of excess pulp and seeds. Refrigerate and set aside.
Combine the tequila, fresh watermelon juice, lime juice in a pitcher or watermelon keg. Add in a good amount of ice and stir thoroughly.
Garnish glasses with watermelon stars.
If you prefer sweeter cocktails, add in 1-2 ounces of store-bought simple syrup. It’ll sweeten these skinny watermelon margaritas right up.
If you’re serving cocktails individually (as opposed to in a pitcher or watermelon keg), combine 1/4th of all ingredients in a cocktail shaker along with some fresh mint and ice. Shake thoroughly until chilled and strain into a cocktail glass.
Lime wedges and mint sprigs work well as garnishes, too! You can also salt the rim, as well, although I’m not personally a fan of how the salt mixes with the watermelon juice.
