Margarita with Watermelon

Watermelon Margarita

Learn to make a Watermelon Margarita!

One of our favorite places to get a margarita with watermelon is at Uncle Julio’s.  The hubby and I first had this a few years ago and the drink is AMAZING! However, at $10 plus a drink it gets way to expensive to have one often. Now with quarantine, it is much safer to have a drink at home! After many tries we have finally perfected the copycat watermelon margarita recipe.

This is our copycat recipe for Uncle Julio’s Watermelon Margarita.

There is nothing that says summer quite like a juicy, ripe watermelon.  I am not sure about you but my kids devour watermelons in the summer.  Between the watermelon margarita’s and feeding the kids we usually buy 2 to 3 watermelons on each grocery shopping trip.We made this recipe over the 4th of July weekend for some family in town and they could not stop raving about how good they were.
