If a classic Margarita recipe (on the rocks with salt) is undeniably perfect for you, then this watermelon version will exceed all your notions of cocktail perfection. It’s refreshing, naturally sweet without added sugar, and just look at that color.
Place some salt on a small plate. Rub rim of an old-fashioned or rocks glass with lime wheel (reserve for serving); dip in salt.
Combine watermelon juice, tequila, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds. Strain cocktail through a Hawthorne strainer or a slotted spoon into prepared glass. Garnish with reserved lime wheel.

really tasty... my husband was hoping for something a bit more sweet, so we did the tequila and lime juice as directed and added 1/2 oz Cointreau and then topped off with the salted watermelon juice... it was equally as delicious and gave him the bit of sweet he wanted.
Delightful. Could easily just drink these down to excess. The salt is a masterful touch. Beautiful color.
What's the over/under on using Mezcal for this recipe?
