One of the downfalls of cocktail making is the clean-up but thankfully with this watermelon margarita mixer recipe, you can make and serve the cocktail directly from the flesh of the melon. This innovative recipe does just that to create a refreshing summer beverage that is also an experience.

The trick to making this cocktail is using an immersion blender. Begin by cutting a circular hole in a large watermelon and using the immersion blender to grind up the fruit's flesh. Then scoop out some of the juice and add tequila, lime juice, bitters and simple syrup. Let the cocktail marinate for a bit and then pour out the liquid directly from the melon into glasses filled with ice and rimmed with salt.
