Cocktail Recipe du Jour: Honeydew Margarita

Posted on October 03, 2014 by Miriam Zelinsky

October is here and it's my favorite month of the whole year! Time for apple picking, pumpkins, costumes, and fun themed cocktail parties while the temperature has yet to plummet below freezing!

With that being said, I'm always on the lookout for easy and (relatively) healthy cocktails – especially ones that incorporate tequila! Make this drink for one, or multiply the recipe for a group!


What You'll Need:

Honeydew melon

2 oz of tequila (preferably silver or blanco tequila)

1 oz fresh lime juice

Optional: 1/2 teaspoon agave (I found the recipe didn't need it so this is entirely to taste)


1) Cut the melon in half and take out the seeds.

2) Hollow out the melon with a spoon and add the pieces to a blender.

3) Blend until smooth.

4) Add the melon juice, ice, lime (and agave if you're using it) to a shaker.

5) Then, mix salt on a rimmed plate (bonus points if you also include chili powder) and run a wedge of lime around your margarita glass before coating the glass in the mixture.
