Easy & Fruity Margarita Recipe

On a warm summer day, nothing tastes better than an ice-cold drink. For me, my go-to drink of choice has often been a margarita. Something about the tangy taste of lime and tequila coupled with the sweetness of margarita mix has always left me craving a sip on a nice, sunny day.

I love experimenting with different flavors, fruits and mixers and this time, I opted in for a watermelon-based mixer. Check out the recipe below for watermelon mint iced tea margaritas!


Watermelon Mint Iced Tea Margaritas

Total Time: 25 minutes

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooling Time: 15 minutes

Serves 6 glasses

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Watermelon
  • Mint Tea – 2 Tea Bags (or Mint Leaves)
  • Rosemary Leaves
  • Lemon
  • Salt

Directions:

  1. Boil water in kettle or a pot on the stove. If you are using a pot, transfer to a pitcher once the water has boiled. Add in two tea bags of a mint tea of your choosing. If you have mint leaves, you can steep those in the hot water instead of using tea bags.
  2. Let the tea steep in the hot water for 5-10 minutes
  3. While the tea is steeping, take one watermelon and slice it into 4 equal parts. Grab one quarter and cut the fruit off the skin.
  4. Dice the watermelon into small pieces. Throw the pieces into the blender and blend until completely liquefied. Transfer into serving bowl.
  5. Cool the tea and the watermelon juice in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  6. Grab margarita/drinking glasses and rub lemon across the entire rim.
  7. Pour salt on a flat surface, like a cutting board, or a bowl big enough to fit your glasses. Place your drinking glasses rim down onto the salt, and keep rotating the glass until the entire rim is coated in salt.
  8. Grab the mint tea and watermelon juice from the freezer, as well as your tequila.
  9. Add 1.5 shots of tequila, 1/3 cup of of tea, and 3 scoops of watermelon juice (ice cream scoop size) into each glass.
  10. Stir well. Add 3-4 ice cubes and garnish with rosemary leaves.
