Frozen Watermelon Margaritas

Frozen Watermelon Margaritas

Is there anything in the world more refreshing than chomping into a chilly, juicy slice of fresh watermelon?

I have great memories surrounding watermelons. When I was a kid living on a farm, friends and I used to pluck them from the fields and smash them on my front steps, grabbing the fruity pink fragments and letting the juice roll down our chins. Enjoying a fresh watermelon – in any form – was the epitome of a perfect summer to me. Still is!

Watermelon Margaritas

So, since there’s just about no drink I love more than a margarita, why not combine two of my favorite things! Especially as the temperatures continue to soar in Texas, I like ‘em so frozen one sip will chill you to the bone! These frozen watermelon margaritas deliver just that, along with great flavor, and can definitely help you cool down on those sticky hot summer nights.

Frozen Watermelon Margaritas Recipe

With a pile of fresh guacamole or a pot of spicy chili, these margaritas go down extra smooth. They’re a cinch to make, with only basic ingredients and a blender required. Plus, of course, a little looser inhibitions and a love of fresh, icy cold margaritas!

    I love frozen cocktails – living in England, we don’t get the excuse to drink them very often but I can’t wait until it heats up a bit and I can dive straight in!

    I wonder if you could freeze some watermelon cubes to substitute for some of the ice, just to erally up the watermelon-y-ness of it. I think I will try :)

    Yum-oh! Saving this one as watermelon juice is perfect for summer. It reminds ME of summer trips to Cancun, where we’d have watermelon agua fresca for breakfast every morning…mmmm!
