It’s the beginning of the weekend after a long week at work. That sounds like a good enough reason to make some margaritas. Not just your everyday margaritas, but watermelon is involved.
Can you believe I have never had a margarita before! I knew that it was time to change that, when I saw a recipe for this frozen watermelon margarita. I love watermelon in the summer time and we had a nice ripe one sitting in the refrigerator.
It turns out that watermelon is excellent in a margarita. I froze the watermelon overnight and used my blender to blend up the margarita, with the frozen watermelon I didn’t have to use ice. The frozen watermelon was enough to make this margarita nice and thick.
I have a feeling I will blending up some other drinks with frozen watermelon in the near future.
