Ingredients

  • 1/4 whole honeydew, seeded, peeled, and cut into chunks (about 2 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • 1/2 cup silver tequila
  • 1 teaspoon light agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Lime wedges
  • Ice
  • Chef notes

    If you're making these margaritas for a crowd, go ahead and puree a whole honeydew and keep it in a pitcher next to the cocktail shaker so you can continue to make additional margaritas.

    Preparation

    In a blender, add the honeydew and blend until smooth. Pour the puree into a large cocktail shaker. Add the lime juice, orange liqueur, tequila and agave syrup.

    On a small plate, combine the sugar and salt. Rub the rims of two rocks glasses with a lime wedge and dip the rims into the sugar mixture to adhere. Add a handful of ice cubes to the shaker and shake until very cold (about 15 seconds). Fill the sugar-rimmed glasses with ice, strain the cold margaritas into them and serve.
