For one cocktail:

  • 1 ounce tequila
  • ½ ounce triple sec
  • ½ ounce midori
  • 2 ounces watermelon juice from half a medium watermelon, see instructions
  • 4 ounces prepared lemonade

For a pitcher:

  • 1 cup tequila
  • ½ cup triple sec
  • ½ cup midori
  • 2 cups watermelon juice
  • 4 cups prepared lemonade

For a non-alcoholic version:

  • 2 cups watermelon juice
  • 4 cups prepared lemonade


  • Start with a half a medium-large seedless watermelon. Slice it, remove the rind. Puree the watermelon in a blender then strain it through a mesh strainer. (I strained it twice.) You'll be left with about 4 cups of watermelon juice, depending on the size of your melon.
  • To make one serving: add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and pour over ice in glass. Garnish with watermelon and/or lemon slices.
  • To make a pitcher: chill all ingredients. Stir all ingredients in a pitcher, garnish with watermelon and lemon slices.
  • To make non-alcoholic: Stir cold watermelon juice with cold lemonade in a pitcher. Great for kids and adults!


Want a frozen margarita? After step 1, pour the watermelon juice into ice cube trays and freeze. Make a cocktail with ingredients listed for one drink, but use 2/3 cup frozen watermelon cubes instead of the juice.
