For the simple syrup:
In a saucepan, combine melon cubes, sugar and a few tablespoons of water. Heat to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, until the melon is completely softened and candied, and the juice has a syrupy texture. Filter through a strainer and set aside in a glass container.

For the cocktail:
In a blender, combine the tequila, Cointreau, melon cubes and lime juice. Add ice and blend, starting on the lowest setting and increasing to the highest setting. Add more ice if you desire a thicker consistency. Pour the frozen Margarita into chilled glasses and garnish with mint and the simple melon syrup

Recipe notes:

  •  If you can, use crushed ice. Your Margarita will blend easier and make a smoother slushie.
  • Take the time to pre-chill your spirits and juice, so that the ice remains cold and doesn’t quickly dilute the drink when you mix it.
  • If you prefer a less boozy version, simply add more ice and a bigger splash of simple melon syrup.
