FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I make this frozen?

Yes! We like to do that as well! To do this, freeze the watermelon before blending and add 1 cup ice.

Do I have to use a whole watermelon?

You can easily find diced up watermelon at your local grocery store that will save you time on cutting up a watermelon. If you do use a whole watermelon make sure that it is seedless.

What kind of tequila should I use?

You can use any kind that you like. My personal favorite is Jose Cuervo but choose a tequila brand that you know you will enjoy.

What is Cointreau?

Cointreau is an orange flavored liqueur similar to Triple Sec. I love Triple Sec but I would describe Cointreau as having a more complex and smoother flavor. Having said all that, you can absolutely switch this out with Triple Sec.
