  • 8 cups seedless watermelon chunks, plus wedges for garnish
  • 1/2 English cucumber, coarsely chopped
  • 1 lime, zested, plus juice of 1/2 lime, plus wedges for rimming glasses
  • 1/4 cup course kosher salt
  • 1 ounce agave syrup or honey
  • 3 ounces white tequila
  • Mint sprigs for garnish

Liquefy the watermelon and cucumber in a blender and strain through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher. Refrigerate until ready to use. Mix the lime zest and salt on a small plate and reserve. When ready to serve: Mix 1/2 cup watermelon-cucumber juice with lime juice, agave, and tequila in a cocktail shaker filled with ice; shake well to chill. Rub the rim of a mason jar with a lime wedge and dip it into the lime zest mixture. Pour the margarita into the salt-rimmed mason jar and garnish with a watermelon wedge and mint sprig.
