How to Make a DAMN GOOD Easy Watermelon Margarita
Good News: Only 5 Ingredients and 10 mins stands between you and a DAMN GOOD Fresh & Easy Watermelon Margarita
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 now we are wiser (hopefully). ANNNNNNND, we no longer only consume tequila by shots and shots alone. Now we mix it to be sipped and enjoyed.
Tequila is the perfect elixir for summer time cocktails.
Fresh watermelon is the perfect summertime food.
It only makes sense to marry the two in a delicious union of fresh watermelon margarita matrimony.
These Fresh & Easy Watermelon Margaritas are Healthy, Right?
Well, let’s think about it . . . They are made with fresh watermelon and lime juice. And tequila is low calorie and tequila is a plant. Also, there is ice in them and ice equals water. So that would make them “hydrating” too.
So, yes! I mean technically you can proclaim, “it’s good for me”. LOL (you know I’m totally joking, right?)
Tell the Truth: Is This Easy Watermelon Margarita Really “Easy” to Make?
Absolutely! In fact, it’s only 5 simple ingredients annnnnnnnnnd it’s a crowd pleaser.
Basically, it’s DAMN GOOD!
Annnnd once you’ve learned how to make this yummy and (did I mention) DAMN GOOD easy watermelon margarita recipe, whipping up a traditional margarita from scratch will seem like child’s play.
So throw out all your margarita mixes because really they are holding you back from being great.
Let’s get to mixing so we can get to sipping!
