It’s all in the presentation
Wow your friends by creating a fun watermelon punch bowl to serve your delicious margarita. Using a sharp knife, carefully trim the bottom of a seedless watermelon to make it a flat surface. Next, cut off the top (about ¼ of the watermelon) and hollow out the flesh with a melon baller. Use an ice cream scoop or large spoon to scrape the inside walls of the watermelon clean. Fill with your favorite margarita recipe and enjoy!
Ice, ice baby
Looking to chill your drink without watering it down? Our fave summertime fruit proves it is as functional as it is tasty with this simple recipe for watermelon ice cubes.
Cut a seedless watermelon into chunks roughly the size of ice cubes. Place in a single layer on a baking pan. Wrap the tray in plastic wrap and freeze overnight or for several hours until cubes are completely frozen. Pop a cube or two to add flavor and colorful fun to your favorite margarita.
