1 cup sweetened watermelon purée
4 oz tequila (reposado preferred)
2 oz Contro liqueur
Juice of 2 limes
1/4 tsp Red Limo Pepper Purée
Watermelon sugar for garnish
Peel, cube, and purée a small seedless watermelon (or desired amount). Sweeten the purée to your desired level of sweetness. For a small watermelon, I used 1/2 cup of sugar.
Fill a mixer with ice and add tequila, Contro liqueur, lime juice, and Red Limo Pepper Purée. Shake vigorously until well combined.
Rim a glass with lime juice and coat the rim with watermelon sugar.
Pour the Watermelon Margarita mixture into the prepared glass.
Garnish with a watermelon slice or lime wedge, if desired.
Sip, savor, and enjoy the sensational fusion of sweet watermelon, fiery pepper purée, and smooth tequila in every delightful sip of this Watermelon Margarita.
Note: Adjust the sweetness of the watermelon purée and the amount of Red Limo Pepper Purée according to your personal taste preference. Cheers to a blissful blend of fruity sweetness and spicy allure in a single glass!
