Grilled Margaritas

If you love a good summer Margarita, the Grilled Watermelon Margarita and the Smoked Blueberry Margarita recipes from Cointreau are amazing. I recently collaborated with Cointreau for a Margarita Monday post and thought I would share the full drink recipes and photos here. Each margarita recipe takes a little while to prepare but the results are very worth it. The fresh ingredients used in all of the Cointreau margarita recipes create a margarita that is sweet, without being too sweet, and tart without being too tart. The Grilled Watermelon was my favorite of the two mainly because the Smoked Blueberry included Mezcal which I typically don’t like nearly as much as tequila. Mezcal aside — both drinks are very delicious. These are the perfect drinks to make for a small gathering or dinner party.
