• 1/2 cup fresh passionfruit pulp
    (7 – 8 fresh passionfruit)
  • 500g watermelon flesh 
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (60 ml) 
  • 120 ml silver tequila 
  • 60 ml triple sec (orange liquor) 

To serve 

  • Ice 
  • Watermelon 
  • Lime wedges 
  • Coarse salt 


  1. Blend watermelon flesh until very smooth. Pass juice through a sieve if desired, discarding any solids. 
  2. Add watermelon juice, passionfruit pulp, lime juice, tequila and triple sec to a jug with a handful of ice. Stir well. 
  3. Pour salt onto a small plate to 1/2 cm depth. Run a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and dip immediately into the salt. Fill the salt-rimmed glass with ice, repeat lime and salt rim with remaining glasses. 
  4. Divide margarita mixture across the glasses, garnish with watermelon and lime to serve.


  • For a mocktail alternative: omit the tequila and triple sec, add 1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh orange juice and 1 cup (250 ml) sparkling water. Skip step 3, as the salt is not required.
