Watermelon and Basil Margaritas

Added to Recipes on Mon 08/26/2013

This cocktail is unlike the girly, slushy drinks you see in bars these days. It’s a grown-up version: not so sweet but really refreshing with herbal notes. Plus, each serving isn’t very strong, so you can enjoy a drink without feeling guilty.



Makes 4 1/2 cups


4 cups watermelon cubes

Juice of 3 limes

Juice of 1 lemon

1/2 cup orange liqueur (like Triple Sec)

3/4 cup tequila 

2 tbsp chopped basil leaves

Whole basil leaves and lime slices for garnish



Put all ingredients in a blender and process until very smooth. 


Pour over ice, garnish with some basil leaves and lime. Serve and enjoy!
