Sweetener alternatives for Watermelon Margaritas

Agave is a natural sweetener that resembles regular syrup. I love it for it’s low-glycemic intake and taste. However, you could opt for regular sugar as your sweetener. But make sure you’re using a superfine sugar aka caster sugar because you don’t want your margarita to be grainy. Additionally, you could also use stevia drops, etc. It’s all in personal preference here. You can skip the sweetener altogether too!

Not into alcohol or do you have little ones? No problem at all! This watermelon margarita is easily adaptable to accommodate a variety of situations according to personal preference! Simply replace the silver tequila with your favorite carbonated (sparking) water. My personal fave is from Topo Chico– I just love their classic bubbly beverage! Other brands include La Croix and Perrier, to name a few.

I’m hoping you all enjoy this watermelon margarita recipe in the summertime or anytime!
