Easy Watermelon Cucumber Margarita

I love summer days. It means lounging on a patio and sippin’ on a good ol’ margarita while barbecuing. Finally, in the PNW we are getting warmer weather, what I really mean that it is over 63 degrees! Which is nice because I am used to 100 plus degree Texas Summers! I have been busy making summer cocktails and I am excited to share them with you in the next few months. This is one of the easiest margaritas you can add to your repertoire. It only requires a few ingredients. It’s my easy watermelon cucumber margarita!

It is all about that Watermelon Cucumber juice

Every year, around this time, I wait for Trader Joe’s to release their Watermelon Cucumber Juice. It’s usually on the shelves by April / May. The perfect summer beverage. It is so refreshing. You can also use it to make different cocktails, sangria, punch, Even Popsicles!

Besides cooking, slingin’ a good cocktail is my specialty. Throughout the years I have experimented with different juices, fruits, spirits and libations to create delicious concoctions.

Watermelon Juice pairs well with Tequila, Mezcal and Gin. The first time I tried this watermelon cucumber juice, I was hooked. So immediately I started planning what I was going to use it for.

One of the first cocktails I created using this juice was a Watermelon Cucumber Martini. I remember clearly because I was celebrating that I had just purchased my domain name and finally was on my way to blogging! (Small Victories!)

Recently, I shared my story how Hungry Traveling Mama came to be , you can read about it here !

While we are not 100% back to our daily activities, you can still enjoy a cocktail here and there, especially when is this easy to make. Just a reminder, since you are at home drink responsibly. With that being said, a mocktail is another option. Substitute the alcohol for mineral water like Topo Chico.
