Make the perfect family party drink – a Fresh Watermelon Margarita that can easily be made as Watermelon Limeade for the kids! This post is sponsored by Meijer.
Summer is in full swing and we are taking full advantage in Wisconsin. Whenever it gets hot I start craving certain things and next to grilling, it’s always fresh fruit! I thought it would be fun to make a drink that could work for our whole family and decided to make a pitcher of fresh margarita limeade that when mixed with tequila gives you the perfect Fresh Watermelon Margarita!
Fresh Watermelon Limeade
Like I said this recipe is for a whole pitcher of fresh Watermelon Limeade that your kids can drink, but when you add a shot of tequila it becomes the perfect adult beverage. Let’s start making some! So even though it takes some time to make this recipe, just remember you’ll get multiple drinks out of it. It’s the perfect party drink since people can mix their own.
How to Make a Fresh Watermelon Margarita
To begin making fresh margaritas you will need to get both fresh watermelon and lime juice. This is the time consuming part, but man the taste will be SO worth it!
Homemade Honey Simple Sryup
For this recipe I used a homemade simple syrup to sweeten the juice. I always try to avoid directly giving my kids sugar, so the honey option is a more healthy alternative! Typically simple syrup is 1 c. water 1 c. sugar. However honey has a pretty distinct flavor so I didn’t want to go with the full cup and decided to only use a 1/2 c. of honey.Print

That is the best drink i have ever tasted. I always dreamed of being able to cook deliciously, but learning on my own is difficult and time-consuming, so I contacted one chef, he just has a perfect resume. He said that he made it with these guys ResumesUniverse.com. They are really good at it, just a professional resume writers.
