These simple watermelon margaritas are perfect on a hot day. Plus, this recipe skips the triple sec which is very high in added sugar. So, if you have one or two you don’t have to worry about feeling sluggish the next day.

Ingredients Needed for Frozen Watermelon Margarita

Watermelon – Carefully remove the rind from the watermelon and cube it into smaller sized pieces. Add the cubed watermelon to a sealable container and place it in the freezer overnight. For best results, ensure the watermelon is fully frozen.

Tequila – I like using a Blanco tequila. Patron or Casamigos are two great options.

Lime Juice – Be sure to use fresh squeezed lime juice. It really takes this recipe to the next level.

Orange Juice – You will also need the juice from one ripe orange. The hint of orange tastes great in this recipe. Plus, it is a great substitute for triple sec which is all sugar.

Honey – Add a touch of honey for a slight sweetness.

Ice – When adding the ice, you will want to add a handful of cubes. I added about 10-12 cubes.

Sriracha Powder / Tajin – Combine the sriracha powder and the tajin on a small plate.
