Watermelon Cucumber Margarita

Watermelon Cucumber Margarita

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I thought today would be an appropriate day to share my new favorite margarita recipe- a watermelon cucumber version that is absolutely delicious and oh so refreshing. Careful though, as these go down like water…

watermelon cucumber margaritaIngredients:

  • 1-2 shots of silver tequila
  • 1 cup seedless watermelon cut into small chunks (or blended- up to you on how you like the consistency)
  • 4-6 thin slices of English hothouse cucumber
  • 2-3 fresh mint leaves
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup or agave nectar (optional)

To make:

  • Using a mortar and pestle (or the back of a spoon) muddle together the watermelon, cucumber and mint
  • Add tequila, juice of 1/2 a lime and simple syrup or agave nectar
  • Shake well
  • Pour over ice or blend- whatever you prefer

*Note- I’ve made these a couple of times without the simple syrup/agave nectar and they are just as good
