What is the first fruit you think of when it is summer? I bet it is watermelon. What fruit is more quintessentially associated with summer than watermelon? Do you remember eating watermelon as a kid? Seeing how far you could spit the seeds out? Wondering if a watermelon would grow in your tummy if you swallowed one? Eating watermelon feels like a right of passage here in the USA for kids. It  makes me feel like a kid whenever I take a bite of this juicy, delicious fruit. I have to admit now a days, I think of pureeing the watermelon for cocktails and mocktails. I know summer is beginning when I have my blender full of luscious watermelon making the base for my margaritas or these virgin ones.

My little one loves to get in on the action of having a “special”. That is what we call a non-alcoholic drink. When she sees me in the kitchen making a cocktail, she always asks for a special. So now I just make the beverage non-alcoholic and can add alcohol to individual glasses for those who want it. It means everyone can enjoy a “special”. Serving a non-alcoholic watermelon margarita in half of a watermelon is a spectacular presentation for a party. Doesn’t it look so pretty with the snazzy umbrellas and cute cocktail picks? It is a great way to serve this scrumptious drink for a crowd.

To make this watermelon beverage taste like a margarita without alcohol, I used agave as the sweetener. Did you know Tequila was made from agave? It is a nifty ingredient for fooling your taste buds. You can even add a little sparkling water to add some fizz, too. I like to rim my glasses with a little mixture of salt and sugar, or serve it with a cute cocktail pick filled with watermelon and grapes. There are so many options. Kids and grown-ups alike are going to love this.
