My Texas margarita features smooth tequila, tart orange, and sweet watermelon flavors. This drink instantly transports me to a warm vacation spot.
Fill the glass with ice. Rum a line around the rim of your glasses. Dip in salt.
Shake all ingredients except the watermelon liqueur in a cocktail shaker.
Pour into glass. Top with watermelon liqueur. Enjoy responsibly!
Ingredient Notes and Shopping Tips
: Use freshly squeezed orange juice if possible.
: Look for this in your grocery store near the tonic water. You can also
make your own
if you'd like.
: I used Jose Cuervo's Silver Tequila. It is clear and not aged for very long.
: I used DeKuyper. You can use any other fruity liquor here, too, such as orange-flavored triple sec, raspberry, or even peach.
: Optional but encouraged. This adds a hint of spice. Be sure to remove the seeds/ribs for less heat.
No cocktail shaker?
No problem! Use a mason jar instead.
: Make ice out of margarita mix to avoid watering down your drink.
Serve a crowd
: Multiply your ingredients by your number of guests to serve these in a pitcher.
: Don't like a salty rim? Use coarse sugar instead.
Chill your glasses to keep your drinks ice cold on these hot summer days.
