What Is A Frozen Watermelon Margarita Mocktail?

A Frozen Watermelon Margarita mocktail is a non-alcoholic version of the classic cocktail. It typically includes blended watermelon, lime juice, and agave syrup for sweetness. Sometimes, it may also include other fruits like strawberries or cucumber like i have done for added flavor complexity.

This mocktail is served frozen, just like the alcoholic version, making it a refreshing and thirst-quenching treat, perfect for enjoying on hot summer days.

What is A Mocktail?

So if you're sitting here thinking, what is a mocktail? Let me explain. A mocktail is like a party in a glass, minus the hangover. It's a delicious and refreshing drink that's packed with all the flavor and complexity of a traditional cocktail but without any of alcohol.

Whether you're a designated driver, a health-conscious human, or just someone who wants to enjoy a delicious drink without the buzz, mocktails are the perfect solution.

How To Make Frozen Watermelon Margarita Mocktails

The most important part about this recipe is choosing ripe, seasonal fruit. If it’s local, even better! It will have the best flavor. I like to chill my watermelon and freeze my strawberries as well as cucumbers before making this mocktail too.

Simply toss all your ingredients, including those pre-frozen strawberries, into a high-powered blender and blend away! Once it's smooth, pour it into your glasses, then get creative with your favorite garnishes. It's as easy as that—sip and enjoy!


Here’s what you need for these watermelon margaritas:

  • Frozen strawberries. You can find these in the grocery store, or slice and freeze fresh strawberries at home and then freeze them.
  • Lime juice. Lemon or orange juice will also work.
  • Watermelon. Choose seedless if you can!
  • Agave. You could also sweeten the mocktails with honey or maple syrup if you prefer.
  • Cucumber. This is what makes everything refreshing or at least plays a role.


Here, I’ve curated a list of drinkware and mocktail essentials that I use to achieve my favorite drinking experiences, especially with these Watermelon Margarita Mocktails. Everything from my fave glassware, cocktail shakers, ice cube trays, and more. SEE THEM HERE!

Garnish Ideas For Frozen Watermelon Margaritas

To put a finishing touch on your frosty mocktail here are some of my favorite garnish ideas:

  • Lime wedges
  • Mint leaves
  • Rosemary sprigs
  • A rim dipped in sugar or salt for added sweetness or savory flair.
  • Fresh sliced strawberries add an extra pizazz as well!
  • Edible flowers
  • Watermelon wedges or chunks for an extra fruity boost.
  • A slice of jalapeño for a hint of heat (if you like it spicy!).

How To Sweeten Watermelon Margarita Mocktails

I opted for agave in this recipe, but you can also sweeten your watermelon margaritas with alternatives like honey or a simple syrup. And if you're a fan of that rich, maple flavor, maple syrup works beautifully too! See the Best Healthy Sugar Alternatives + Substitutes list it's all about finding better ways to enjoy your favorite sweets without compromising your healthy lifestyle.

Can I Add Alcohol To These Watermelon Margaritas?

If you’d like to serve this as a cocktail you can add your favorite alcohol to the mixture. The best alcohol for a classic margarita is tequila, which is a slightly grassy, smoky liquor----making it perfect for fruity drinks. However, these other types of alcohols (just about 1 ounce or so) can work great with this frozen margarita flavor combo also:

  • Gin
  • Rum
  • Vodka

Yes ----- This Watermelon Margarita mocktail is healthy. It doesn't contain alcohol or added sugar—just agave for sweetness. Plus, the strawberries, watermelon, and cucumber are all hydrating and nutritious ingredients!

Frozen Watermelon Margarita Mocktail Q + A's

How many servings does this mocktail recipe make?

This recipe makes two mocktails.

Can I make a bigger batch of this peach margarita recipe?

To make these alcohol-free drinks for a crowd, simply scale the recipe up as needed. You may need to add more liquid to help things blend in a full blender.
If you're serving these over some time, it's best to keep the pitcher in the fridge or on ice so things don't melt.

How do you add garnish to rim(s)?

To make things more fancy, I love to add coconut flakes, sea salt or cane sugar to the rim of my glass(es). To do this, you'll simply need to wet the rims a bit with a lime wedge and then turned facing down, slightly moving it around in the sugar or salt until covered.

Can I use fresh strawberries instead of frozen?

Yes! You can feel free to use freshly sliced strawberries in these mocktails, but you'll need to add about 2 cups or so of ice to make things more of a frozen consistency. 

How do you keep these mocktails frozen for a party?

Once you've blended everything together, pour them into individual jars or glasses (½ pint jars work great for individual servings). Then cover them with their lids (for easier storage) and put them in the freezer, leaving them in the freezer until you're ready to serve them.
