Ingredients
  • 2 cups watermelon balls, plus more for garnish
  • 1 gallon watermelon juice
  • 2 quarts blanco tequila
  • 8 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 8 ounces simple syrup
  • 8 ounces blue Curacao, divided
  • Lime slices, for garnish
Directions
  • Remove the spout from an empty 5-gallon water container. Add enough water to fill it only 1/4 of the way. Place into the freezer with the spout facing up, this way the frozen section will be at the back of the container.

  • Once frozen and you are ready to serve your guests, add the watermelon balls, watermelon juice, tequila, lime juice, and simple syrup. Alternatively, this can be made in a pitcher as well. Place the spout back onto the container and your guests are ready to serve themselves.

  • For a layered margarita: Pour 1/2-ounce blue Curacao over ice. Carefully add the watermelon mixture to create a layered effect.

  • Garnish with more watermelon balls and lime slices.

  • Guy's Tip: Keep the watermelon balls in the freezer to help keep the drink even colder.
