All you will need is some fresh watermelon, crushed ice, silver tequila and orange juice. That’s only four ingredients! Simple and delicious.

Finally, after you’ve assembled your handful of ingredients in a tall glass, top this Watermelon Tequila Sunrise with lemon slices, orange slices, more fresh watermelon or a few mint leaves! Either way you top it, this simple cocktail is sure to turn heads and please a crowd.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup fresh watermelon cubes
  • 3/4 cup crushed ice
  • 1 standard shot silver tequila
  • 6 ounces orange juice

Instructions

  1. In the bottom of a tall glass, gently muddle the watermelon. Add the ice in over the top of the muddled watermelon, followed by the tequila and orange juice.

Notes

  • This recipe can be made in a large pitcher form. I would just times the recipe by however many people you are expecting to serve and still follow the same directions of muddling the watermelon in the bottom, followed by the rest of the ingredients.
