Mint Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup freshly chopped mint leaves

Fresh Watermelon Margaritas

  • 1/2 small ripe watermelon
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 ounces premium silver tequila, my favorite is Maestro Dobel Diamante
  • 1 ounce mint simple syrup (optional)
  • 2 sea salt for rim garnish (optional)
  • 2 lime wedges for garnish (optional)


Mint Simple Syrup

  • Combine sugar, water and mint leaves in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and stir until sugar dissolves, about a minute or two. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Strain syrup and discard mint leaves. Pour into a jar or squeeze bottle.
  • May be stored in your refrigerator for up to a month.

Fresh Watermelon Margaritas

  • Cut your watermelon into cubes and place into blender or vitamix. Puree until smooth. This should yield about 1-2 cups of juice. You may choose to strain the juice if you're using a standard blender, but that's optional.
  • For the margaritas, you simply add ice to your cocktail shaker and combine the liquid ingredients. Shake with vigor and taste a sample before you pour into glasses to see if you would like to adjust any ingredients.
  • Rim your glasses with salt if you'd like, add ice to each and pour your margaritas. Top with a lime wedge and serve!
