Picture of Watermelon Margaritas

My favorite summer drink hands down is fresh watermelon juice. No wait, I meant to say margaritas. Oh but, the juice is so refreshing... but summer needs tequila... WAIT! There's no need to decide is there? How about watermelon margaritas served IN mini watermelons. Yes, as I was saying, watermelon margaritas are my favorite summer drink...

Such a great way to get my water quotient for the day! (and my tequila quotient, and my triple sec quotient, and my melon quotient, etc)
