This melon margarita cocktail recipe is so delicious. And, I used Powell and Mahoney’s classic margarita mix, which makes it super fast to mix the melon margaritas and get them into your guests waiting mouths!

Okay peeps, I was offered this opportunity to feature the Powell & Mahoney Craft Cocktail Mixers and boy, am I glad I did. This is the best pre-made cocktail mixer I have ever had.


Here’s my complaint about other pre-made mixes: They are too sweet.


The Powell & Mahoney way

I have to say that is not the case with this glorious mixer. I find their products, especially this classic margarita mixer, to be delightfully balanced.

Here’s why I enjoy this product:

  • Powell & Mahoney use only natural ingredients in their mixers, which makes you feel good about serving them to your family and friends
  • Powell & Mahoney have won awards for outstanding quality
  • They make their cocktail mixers in small batches
  • They are the leading maker of natural cocktail mixers
  • Their mixers are naturally gluten-free
  • Their products are super easy to use

Another fun thing for me is knowing that Powell & Mahoney is headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, which is in my home state and not very far from me!


You can find Powell & Mahoney products in the following stores: Whole Foods, Target, Walmart, as well as in your local grocers and liquor stores.

These cocktail mixers also make popular presents, either in gift baskets or at Yankee Swaps!! Just saying!

How to make a melon margarita


Get a cocktail shaker and fill it halfway with ice. Also get a measuring glass, and margarita glasses.

Slice two thin lime wheels from a lime and cut a small slit in them.

Since this is a sponsored post, I will not be showing any bottles other than the Powell & Mahoney margarita mixer.

Step one

Gather the ingredients – Powell & Mahoney classic margarita mixer, tequila and melon liqueur!

Step two

Add 4 ounces of tequila, 2 ounces of melon liqueur and 8 ounces of the classic margarita mixer.

Step three

Cap the shaker, shake for 30 seconds and pour the contents into the two margarita glasses.

Add more ice as needed.

Garnish the margaritas with thin lime wheels.

Mmmm. Let’s look at another view of this melon margarita cocktail.

Okay. Now, let’s see what I did with these delicious margaritas!

I invited my sister, Robyn and our family friend Lisa over for appetizers, melon margaritas and pulled pork sandwiches because everything, and not just holidays, are #bettertogether!

That’s Christopher pouring the yummy melon margarita in Robyn’s glass. Notice her iron grip on the base of her glass? She knows that if I wasn’t behind the camera, I’d be running over there and snatching it out of her hand.

Bottoms up

Now, let’s see everyone enjoying themselves. They both love their melon margaritas, but I couldn’t pry Lisa’s lips off the glass, which means she really loves it.

Christopher and Robyn are sampling the chips and salsa and hummus!

Have I ever mentioned that Christopher is a clown?  Not a real clown, that would be creepy, but he’s super funny.

He’s telling them a story.

And now for the punchline.

  1. I’m with you, Elaine! Most mixers are way too sweet! In fact, my husband usually “cuts” my margarita mixer with club soda for a little fizz and less sugar. I’m definitely going to look for Powell and Mahoney the next time I’m at the liquor store.

  2. Margaritas are such a fun drink. The melon is a great twist! Margaritas, good friends and laughter is the recipe for fun.
