  • 6 oz lemon lime soda (about half a standard can)

For a Single Serving 10 oz glass:

Instructions

To make the watermelon base:

  1. Add the cubed watermelon and lemon lime soda into a blender. Blend until completely smooth. Pour through a strainer to strain out the pulp from the juice.

For the glass and pitcher sizes:

  1. Salt the rims of the glass(es) with the Pink Himalayan sea salt.
  2. Add the crushed ice into the bottom of your glass or pitcher. Add in the additional watermelon cubes (a few per serving). Pour the tequila over the ice and watermelon.
  3. Top off the glass or pitcher with the watermelon base/juice. Garnish with additional watermelon cubes and lime wedges. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Cut your watermelon cubes about 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch or 1 inch x 1 inch.
  • You can make the watermelon base a day in advance and store in the refrigerator. You will need to stir it before adding it to the cocktails.
