Melon Margarita

Prep time 10 mins
Yield Makes 1 serving
Make any size batch of this recipe by simply multiplying the ingredient measurements by the desired number of servings. For larger batches, stir together all ingredients in a pitcher until powdered sugar is dissolved. Chill and serve over ice. For a sweeter drink, use 1/2 cup powdered sugar instead of 1/3 cup.

Ingredients

  • Fresh lime wedge (optional)
  • Margarita salt (optional)
  • Ice
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice*
  • 3 tablespoons melon liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Garnish: lime slice

How to Make It

  1. Rub rim of a chilled margarita glass with lime wedge, and dip rim in salt to coat, if desired.

  2. Fill cocktail shaker half full with ice. Add lime juice, liqueur, tequila, and powdered sugar; cover with lid, and shake until thoroughly chilled. Strain into prepared glass. Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.

  3. *1/3 cup thawed frozen limeade concentrate may be substituted for fresh lime juice. Omit powdered sugar, and proceed with recipe as directed.

  4. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Midori for melon liqueur and Jose Cuervo Especial for tequila.
