Frozen watermelon margaritas should be on your menu all summer long. And if they’re not…well what are you waiting for! These margaritas are so refreshing, you’ll want to have them every night of the week on those long, hot summer days.

If you’re not about that frozen margarita life, you can modify this recipe and make watermelon margaritas on the rocks… which you can pour into pitchers and serve them next time you host a backyard bbq. Instead of blending frozen watermelon, you can muddle up fresh watermelon or use fresh squeezed watermelon juice in place of the frozen watermelon. Equally replace the amount of frozen watermelon for fresh (or juiced) watermelon.

Cut the watermelon into cubes, that are small enough to freeze quickly.

Add all the ingredients to a high power blender, and blend on high for 25 to 30 seconds.

Pour into chilled rock glasses and enjoy!

  • 3 to 4 cups frozen watermelon (see notes)
  • 2/3 cup Tequila (I use Libelula)
  • 2/3 cup Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/2 cup Triple Sec (I use Combier Liqueur D'Orange)
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar

Cut 3 to 4 cups worth of fresh watermelon into 1 inch cubes. Place the cut watermelon to a zip lock bag, and transfer to the freezer until frozen (at least 2 hours, maybe longer). This will help make the frozen margarita actually frozen. Alternatively, you can blend up the fresh watermelon into a juice and then pour the juice into ice cube trays.
In a high power blender, add the frozen watermelon, tequila, fresh lime juice, triple sec, and agave nectar. Blend on high for 25 to 30 seconds. Be careful not to blend for to long, or the margs will liquify. However, if you prefer to have your margs on the rocks (not frozen, but over ice), blend until fully liquified.
  • You can use pre-frozen watermelon to save you some time. If you can't find pre-frozen watermelon, just buy a fresh watermelon and cut it into 1 inch cubes. Just budget enough time to allow the watermelon pieces to freeze.
