Because of the sweetness of the watermelon this margarita doesn't need much sugar, so one glass has only 105 calories. A little bit of fresh lime juice brightens the drink and adds a welcome tanginess. For a special touch, rim your glasses with sugar and garnish with lime wedges and watermelon balls.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place 2 teaspoons sugar in a saucer. Rub the rims of 6 glasses with 1 lime wedge; spin rim of each glass in sugar to coat. Set prepared glasses aside.

Step 2

Combine watermelon and next 4 ingredients (through Triple Sec) in a blender; process until smooth. Fill each prepared glass with 1/2 cup crushed ice. Add 1/2 cup margarita to each glass. Garnish with lime wedges or melon balls, if desired.

These are so refreshing. They are perfect for a drink to drink all day on the boat or at a bbq. There is some foam on top usually. You can spoon it off. If you wait 15 minutes after blending, they are even better. I use 3/4 cup tequila.

CharlieLawrence, watermelon doesn't freeze well; probably why you couldn't taste it

I was very surprised to see the good reviews. I made this recipe and was very disappointed. I followed recipe exactly but substituted vodka for tequila. The problem was that the drink was very pulpy and had a very overwhelming flavor of watermelon. When I blended it, it became very frothy, but when I let it sit in the freezer, it seperated, the watermelon juice on top and the alcohol on bottom. Would never make this again, glad I tried it before serving to guests.

Loved these the first time I tried them last summer, and I still think they are great! We just pour over ice cubes instead of crushing ice - just as good. Also use 3/4 tequila.

I think this would have been much better had the watermelon been tastier. It was kind of bland and not too much taste. Sugar can't make up for the lack of watermelon flavor, so a low rating on this recipe isn't exactly fair. However the recipe we made up wasn't really too good. Be sure to get a good watermelon for this recipe.

Instead of serving this poured over ice, we blended it with the ice to make a slushy drink. It was much, much better that way.
