Watermelon Cucumber Margarita and Summer Must Haves

On one of our many bestie getaways, Kristin and I visited Phoenix, Arizona together and while there we went to dinner with friends at a super fun restaurant called Diego Pops. We, of course, had to test out a slew of different flavored margaritas and, not surprisingly, loved them all! One flavor I especially enjoyed was a cucumber margarita. It was really mild and not as sweet as a typical margarita. So, when I got home I decided I just HAD to try my hand at making a few margarita recipes on my own and the watermelon cucumber margarita I’m sharing today was the clear winner. Incidentally, if you’re planning on visiting Phoenix, we have some tips on where to stay and what to do in Phoenix for you, but I digress…Let’s get back to the subject at hand which is tasty cocktails AND a giant sale…more on that later!

This Watermelon Cucumber Margarita is perfect for any warm spring or summer day when you simply want to cool down and sip on an ice cold beverage. It’s also perfect for Cinco de Mayo, which will be headed our way very soon. Everyone is eager to sip on a marg and nosh on chips and salsa on May 5th. Am I right? To be fair, that pretty much describes every day for me. Bwah! And the cucumber in this margarita recipe leaves you feeling very refreshed and light. It’s almost spa-like, if spas served margs. I mean I would certainly pay a visit to one that did. Who’s with me? Haha! I’m ready to book my appointment!

Now, initially, I wasn’t sure if this would be a salt or sugar rimmed glass type of margarita, but, after making this batch, I think the next time I whip these delectable drinks up, I will rim the glasses with some fun pink or even green sugar. Also, another helpful tip is to make sure your watermelon is fresh and sweet! Your watermelon cucumber margarita will taste all the better if it is. In included the full recipe below so in no time you’ll be having margarita-filled day my lovelies!

Well, you’re in luck because we shared some more watermelon recipes below! With watermelon season right around the corner, you’re going to want to know how to use up those big melons (I’m not the only one who buys huge ones, right?) and you’re going to want to have some seriously fabulous signature summer cocktails like our friend Krystal’s pineapple watermelon cocktail up your sleeve. We’ve got you covered on both counts!
