Tipsy Watermelon

Hands-on time 15 mins
Total time 1 hr
Yield Makes 6 servings
The easiest and quickest way to cut a watermelon: Cut the top and bottom off so it can sit flat on a cutting board. Run a sharp knife down the sides, taking off the rind. Cut it into rounds, and then cut rounds into chunks.


  • 4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons light agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

How to Make It

  1. Place watermelon in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish. Whisk together tequila, lime juice, and agave nectar in a small bowl. Pour mixture over watermelon, gently stirring to coat. Cover and chill 45 minutes to 8 hours. Sprinkle with kosher salt just before serving.
