Use leftover watermelon to add sweet flavor and fun color to this lime drink. If you like your watermelon with a sprinkle of salt, try this cocktail with a salt rim instead of sugar.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place watermelon in a single layer on a baking sheet. Freeze 4 hours or until firm.

Step 2

Coat rims of cocktail glasses with lime juice; dip in sugar.

Step 3

Process frozen watermelon, tequila, and next 4 ingredients in a blender until slushy. Pour into glasses. Garnish, if desired.

Step 4

*1/2 cup orange or apple juice may be substituted for tequila.

Given all the rave reviews and the fact that I love all the ingredients, I expected this to be a winner. Boy, was I wrong! I made pretty much as written, but I did add more tequila--be warned that the original recipe makes a VERY weak drink, just a little more than half a shot of alcohol in a tall glass. Maybe this addition was the problem, but the flavors just DID NOT seem to go together. All five people who taste-tested thought the drink was disgusting, and I ended up throwing out the whole batch.

Oh my gosh, delish. Both my husband and I are crazy about these! Definitely our new summer go-to cocktail!

I served these at a BBQ and people are requesting that I have these on hand at all future parties! They are absolutely wonderful! I would suggest that you freeze the watermelon a day before hand. One batch only makes 3 servings. You can stretch it to 4 servings but they will be small. Buy lots of watermelon!
