"This is the non-frozen version of my watermelon margaritas. These are so amazing and refreshing on hot summer days. To make a virgin version, omit the tequila and use a lemon-lime soda."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

cubed seeded watermelon
salt or sugar for rimming glasses
lime, cut into wedges
crushed ice, or as needed
ok, I make these too, however, skip the ice! Cube your Melon the night before and freeze it on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Make it into a slushie in a blender the next day with all the other ingredients. AWESOME
YUM, SOOOO REFRESHING! I followed the other reviewer and cubed/froze my watermelon and skipped the ice. Hubby and I both really, REALLY enjoyed these...They are gonna be a summer staple for sure~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
These are BOMB. Make em all the time in the summer.
I have to be honest when I first saw this I thought - Why would you mess up a good margarita with watermelon.... and I LOVE watermelon. But then I accidently froze chopped up watermelon that I was trying to cool quickly. So I thought of this recipe. Made it yesterday while sitting by the pool. I did not have Orange Zest so I threw in some Orange Luquire (sp) I had already made a previous picture of Blue Maragaritas - and thought why not use this for the orange flavoring. They were GREAT; and so cool and refreshing. YUMMY - Great summer Maragarita.
These were very refreshing and very tasty! I made the simple syrup and put in the freezer for about 10 minutes. I then put a few ice cubes in there to help cool faster. Put everything including the frozen watermelon in the blender and blended. I was really cold so I did not have to add ice to the blender. Served over crushed ice. TIP you can't blend frozen watermelon without some kind of a liquid. Just throw everything in there at once and there you have it... no need to dirty a pitcher and the blender.
I loved this! Granted, I was that annoying person who did tweak just a bit...I did as others suggested, omitting the ice and freezing the watermelon. I also drastically cut back on the simple syrup (I made the amt called for, but only used about 1/4 c...didn't want to ingest all that sugar in a couple of drinks. Granted, my friend opted to stir more simple syrup into her drink as it was quite a bit more potent, but it suited me fine : ) I sliced more watermelon as we were sipping away, popped it into the freezer so I'll have it ready when the craving kicks in!
I think this will be amazing when the watermelons get ripe! I believe my melon was a little lacking, and I'm not going to make the submitter suffer for the sake of my watermelon! Once you have a really red, ripe, sweet melon, you may want to adjust the simple syrup to your liking, but for my under-ripe one, it needed the sugar. Novel idea, will make again!
DELICIOUS!!! Thanks to other's suggetions, I froze the watermelon and used no ice (great idea!). Also added Triple Sec. My guests and I all thought it was the best margaritas we have ever had! My new favorite summer drink! Thanks for the recipe!
