Home Ec: Watermelon Margarita

photo by 

We made this slightly healthier super summery twist on the classic margarita last week at my best friend’s lake house. We modified this recipe from GOOP and loved the results. So fresh! We also made a virgin batch by omitting the tequila and all of the pregnant and nursing ladies and kids went wild. Drink up : )


Water Melon Margarita

Makes 6 cocktails


1 cup Tequila

3.5 cups organic watermelon (seedless)

1/4 cup organic lime juice, freshly squeezed

1/2 cup organic agave simple syrup (equal parts agave and water boiled into syrup)

salt and lime juice for rim

ice cubes


1. Chop the watermelon into chunks and blend in a high-speed blender until smooth. You can strain this through a fine sieve, but we left it thick and pulpy.

2. Add the lime juice, agave simple syrup, and tequila to the blender and give it a quick buzz

3. You can either pour over ice or add ice to the blender and give it another mix

4. Pour into salt rimmed glasses and enjoy
