Frozen Watermelon Margaritas

  • Author: Alaena Haber
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 0 min
  • Total Time: 10 minutes



4 cups frozen cubed watermelon

1/3 cup high-quality silver tequila

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 teaspoon sea salt or pink salt

1/3 cup filtered water, if needed

for serving: lime wedge, grated lime zest, crushed coarse salt


  1. Prior to making your margaritas, you will want to remove the rind, cut the watermelon in cubes, and then freeze in a single layer on a large parchment-lined plate or cutting board. You’ll want to freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight. 
  2. In a high-speed blender, combine the frozen watermelon, tequila, lime juice and sea salt, using the tamper to keep the mixture going. If the mixture gets stuck, slowly add some of the water, as needed. 
  3. To serve, you can create a salt rim by running a lime wedge along the rim and dipping in crushed coarse salt. Sprinkle grated lime zest on top and serve with a straw. It will melt over the next 10 to 15 minutes, so serve immediately.
