Watermelon is one of the most hydrating fruits there is (hence its straight-forward name), and it turns out the melon pairs pretty darn perfectly with a splash of tequila and lime. (Hey, this is full-blown detox-to-retox season.)

Healthy-ish cocktail creator, Pamela Wiznitzer, one of America’s Top Female Mixologists, crafted a low-sugar watermelon marg recipe that’ll give you major vacay vibes—no PTO required. “It has the freshness from the watermelon and a bit of spice and zip from a bit of ginger,” she says.

Her wildcard ingredient: honey syrup (agave nectar also works), which is a better-for-you alternative than sugar, Wiznitzer says. Another bonus: The ginger is packed with a pain-relieving phytochemical called gingerol that may reduce the inflammation. As far as cocktails go, this one is brimming with benefits.
