In our home, we’re firm believers in celebrating regularly. What do we celebrate on a regular basis? Tacos. With about 95% of the population. But hey, there’s a reason everyone’s doing it. If you haven’t jumped on this train yet, we highly suggest you do it…..and soon!
So, as you can tell, this post isn’t about the next best taco recipe, but about it the cocktail that was made for tacos. All hail the margarita! After a long term relationship with the jalapeno & cucumber version, my husband so kindly suggested that we mix things up a bit. And what better way to ring in summer than by adding a little watermelon to everything! This Watermelon Margarita is new favorite of ours & is so light and refreshing. PLUS! it pairs perfectly with grilled Mahi-Mahi tacos with pineapple salsa (recipe coming soon!).
