Tequila, how I love thee. Let me count the ways . . .
In the (very distant) past, tequila hasn’t always been everyone’s friend. Show of hands, who remembers college?
Things have changed. We have changed. We are now older and wiser (hopefully). ANNNNNNND, we no longer only consume tequila by shots and shots alone. Now it’s sipped and enjoyed.
Summer is right around the corner and tequila is the perfect elixir for summer time cocktails. Plus, watermelon is the perfect summertime food. It only makes sense to marry the two in delicious best fresh watermelon margarita libation unity. I LOVE this recipe because it’s made with fresh watermelon and lime juice. Which means I can technically proclaim, “it’s good for me”. Right?!

Pssst: Is bourbon more your thing? Have no fear, I’ve got you covered.
