Watermelon Mint Margaritas are the most refreshing summer cocktail! Fresh watermelon is blended with tequila, lime juice, and an easy homemade mint simple syrup. These margaritas are so pretty and so delicious!
I feel like I’ve been so behind on holidays this year. I didn’t post a single Mardi Gras recipe, I think I posted one for Easter, and I can’t name another holiday that’s passed to save my life.
It’s safe to say that if there were more, I definitely missed them.
But I will not miss Cinco de Mayo! We’re starting a couple weeks early so I can squeeze in all the margaritas and melted cheese I can come up with.
I’ve been obsessed with watermelon for the last couple summers and it looks like it will be continuing this year since I couldn’t wait to share these Watermelon Mint Margaritas with you!
They’re really easy and yes, they start with fresh watermelon. No fake stuff here!
I bet they would be delicious next to a pool or on the beach or basically anywhere that it’s hot! And look how pretty they are!

How Long Is Simple Syrup Good For?
This simple syrup will be good for up to 3 – 4 weeks in the fridge. I always store mine in a little mason jar and then add it to pretty much any cocktails we make. You can’t really go wrong adding mint to drinks.
