  • juice of 1 lime

  2. To make watermelon ice cubes, cube the other half of the watermelon into ice cube-sized pieces and place on a baking sheet. Make sure they're not touching of they'll stick together. Freeze for 4-5 hours or overnight, or until very firm.

  3. To make margaritas, add watermelon juice, lime juice, tequila and triple sec to a cocktail shaker or pitcher and shake vigorously or stir.

  4. Next, run the quarter of a lime around two serving glasses and then dip in margarita salt. Fill 3/4 of the way full with watermelon ice cubes (or regular ice cubes if preferred).

  • Watermelons are mostly water — about 92 percent — and have significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids.
  • Although not necessarily “healthy”, tequila is a gluten-free option that has less sugar than most wine.
