Watermelon Margarita

"“[It] feels like sitting on the beach under the bright sun with a cool breeze.”

Watermelon and mint always work well together. This simple riff on the classic Margarita from bartender Gabe Sanchez of Midnight Rambler in Dallas (which we have personally visited and LOVE). This recipe combines these two ingredients to create a grassy, citrusy punch that helps give a new twist to an old classic.

Recommended glassware: Margarita glass or Rocks Glass

  • 4 mint leaves

  • 1/2 ounce light agave nectar

  • 1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila

  • 1/2 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed

  • 1/2 ounce watermelon juice

  1. Rim a glass by swirling lime juice around the top of your glass, then spin the rim in a bowl or plate of Salty Watermelon.

  2. Add the mint leaves and agave into a shaker and gently muddle.
