Watermelon Margaritas

These refreshing watermelon margaritas are lightly sweetened with watermelon and a little agave syrup. The store-bought margarita mixes have so much added sugar. It’s better to skip those and make your own margaritas.

I tried making the famous Skinny Girl Margarita the other day and whoa is it boozy. Two of those and I would be probably be up on a table doing something I would regret the next day. It’s just tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur. I think I like a little something fruity mixed in with my tequila – and fresh watermelon juice is definitely the way to go.
