We’re beyond ready for warm weather. Because with warm weather come a few of our favorite things: no jackets, lunching outside, and margaritas. In an attempt to will the sunshine to make an appearance sooner rather than later, we have crafted the ultimate summer day…in a glass. Presenting, the Watermelon-rita — our very own take on the timeless margarita.
This drink is sweet, refreshing, and the prettiest coral color. You can boost the flavor even more by salting the rim of your glass and shaking your cocktail with mint before pouring—just in case you’re fancy like that! Okay, let’s do this thing…
Step one: ingredients
You will need…
- Watermelon juice
- Mint (optional)
- Salt (optional)
Step two: muddle
Next, muddle some watermelon in a small bowl and add to your glasses.
Step three: tequila
Now, add an ounce of tequila to each glass. If you prefer a more robust beverage, make it a double!
Step four: lime time
Next, take the juice from two limes and evenly distribute it between your glasses.
Step five: watermelon
Almost there! Fill your glasses to the top with watermelon juice.
Step six: garnish
You did it! You made summer-in-a-glass. Now, just add a slice of watermelon, a twist of lime, and you’re good to go. Like we said, you can also take this cocktail to the next level with mint and a salted rim.
