  • 1 cup watermelon juice, cold
  • 1/4 cup silver tequila, cold
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons Cointreau or triple sec
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, optional
  • 1 small cube of feta cheese, frozen

  • a fine grater/zester for the feta cheese


  1. Fifteen (15) minutes before serving, freeze the feta, a fine grater and a plate (for easier grating)

  2. Combine the watermelon juice, the tequila, the lime juice, and the Cointreau (or triple sec) in a jar and stir well to mix.

    Taste and add the sugar if needed. At this step, you can also adjust the tequila or watermelon juice.

  3. Pour some watermelon juice in a clean plate enough to just cover its surface. The plate should be wide enough to fit the top of your glasses.

    Wet the rims of two glasses by dipping them into the plate with the juice.

  4. Grate feta cheese in the cold plate and dip the glasses gently into the grated feta cheese.

    Fill with the watermelon margarita.


Recipe Notes

You can strain the watermelon juice or not. Straining will not affect the taste, but it will make your drink brighter red in color.
For a colder drink, make the watermelon margarita and store the jar in the freezer for 30 minutes. I don’t like to use ice cubes because they dilute the taste. If you have the time, you can make watermelon juice ice cubes.
