There is nothing I love more on a steamy summer day than a nice cool wedge of sweet watermelon. Except for these delicious margaritas, of course! This recipe was born on a summer day much like today. I had some watermelon that was about to go bad so I tossed it in the freezer and decided to make margaritas. Not sure how this line of thought came to me...except to say that I was still in college and there are always half full bottles of alcohol in the cabinet. So naturally the last bit of tequila and my leftover watermelon were a match made in college kitchen heaven. Freezing the melon enhanced it's natural sweetness so I didn't add any additional sugar. I put in a bit of lemon juice for an extra little zing of tartness that really complements the sugary melon flavor. Thus one of my favorite summer beverage was born. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have. Happy Cinco de Mayo and Cheers to summer!
