Salted and Spiced Watermelon Margaritas

Say hello to your new favorite summer cocktail: this refreshing, salted and spiced watermelon margarita. This clever recipe combines everything magical about margaritas (tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and a salt rim), with a kick of heat from the fresh jalapeños and refreshing sweetness from the watermelon juice. Salt accentuates watermelon’s sweet taste and accentuates the tangy margarita base. The lime zest rim is part sugar and part salt for a balanced twist on the original.

These margaritas pair well with whatever you may be serving for dinner. Try them with chicken tacos and guacamole for a laid-back Mexican-inspired meal, or pour them out poolside while a rack of ribs gets ultra tender on the grill. 

Looking for more ways to make the most of peak-summer watermelon? Chop it up into a refreshing, savory salad, whiz it into a tangy batch of gazpacho, or layer it with mozzarella in our watermelon Caprese salad.
