When summer rolls around I try to use my absolute favorite fruit, watermelon, in any and every way I can.  So the other night when tiring of my standard margarita and with a bowl full of fresh cut watermelon in the fridge I thought, “yes a watermelon margarita must happen.”  And happen it did.  The sweetness of fresh watermelon juice combined with refreshing mint sprigs, tart lime, and tequila will have you sipping all summer long.  truly, MKR
