Watermelon Cucumber Margarita
Summer is officially here! I feel like I wait all year for this season because it means permanent tans, rosé without guilt, and easy outfit choices. And of course, cocktails for absolutely NO reason! I had to make that part clear since I invited my friend and lifestyle blogger Devon Rachel over on a Tuesday for some margaritas. Then again, Devon is probably the only girl I know that would be down for some impromptu cocktailing (knew I liked her for a reason!).

With temps already hitting triple digits here in the Valley, a refreshing, COLD drink is actually pretty necessary. Nothing sounds more refreshing to me than watermelon, cucumber, and mint. Am I right? So why not add a little tequila, line that rim with some tajin or salt and there you go!

Now I have to be honest, when Devon & I first attempted to make this (as you’ll see in the video below), I added 6oz of tequila!!! Not sure how I got the number so wrong but between the strength of the alcohol and the supreme saltiness on the rim, we were anything but graceful while taking our first sips. However, I promise you we gave it another shot with the correct ratios and it was beyond yummy.
