Happy Hour: Watermelon Margarita


It’s margarita season! 

No matter if you order yours frozen or on the rocks, margs are flavorful, refreshing, and versatile cocktails. In the spirit of the spring season, we’re taking the classic to the next level with a fruity twist! 


Watermelon Margarita 
Makes 8 


  • 2 lbs cubed watermelon (frozen, if desired)
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup Cointreau
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • Maldon smoked sea salt 


  1. Add watermelon, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and simple syrup to a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Pour into your favorite pitcher and reserve.
  3. Sprinkle sea salt in a small plate or bowl. Grab your favorite old-fashioned glass or margarita glass and press a slice of lime along the rim. Once coated, flip your glass rim into the salt and give it a few twists to ensure an even coating of salt on the rim.
  4. Flip the glass back over. Add ice cubes to the glass, pour in the margarita, and garnish with a slice of lime.
