Summer is here and it’s time to have some fun! I know people are planning to celebrate dads and this recipe for watermelon margaritas would be a fun addition to dinner. Temperatures are rising this week and this weekend these margaritas would be the perfect way to cool off! This recipe is really delicious and simple! The watermelon and orange juice are so sweet naturally, that you don’t need any added sugar.
These would pair perfectly with a barbeque or a fun dinner on the grill! I really associate these with a relaxed beachy state of mind. They would be perfect for taking to sit on the sand and watch the waves crash in. You can find other fun summer cocktail recipes here and here.
