I feel like I’ve been so behind on holidays this year. I didn’t post a single Mardi Gras recipe, I think I posted one for Easter, and I can’t name another holiday that’s passed to save my life.
It’s safe to say that if there were more, I definitely missed them.
But I will not miss Cinco de Mayo! We’re starting a couple weeks early so I can squeeze in all the margaritas and melted cheese I can come up with.
(I’ve also started planning for National S’mores Day. I may miss all the other holidays but you know I’ll be here for margaritas and s’mores.)
I’ve been obsessed with watermelon for the last couple summers and it looks like it will be continuing this year since I couldn’t wait to share these Watermelon Mint Margaritas with you!
They’re really easy and yes, they start with fresh watermelon. No fake stuff here! You just need the watermelon and then you make a quick mint simple syrup, stir in some tequila and lime juice, and you’re done!
I bet they would be delicious next to a pool or on the beach or basically anywhere that it’s hot! And look how pretty they are!
