Watermelon Margarita

Wet your whistle on these dog days of summer with a refreshing Watermelon Margarita. We are in peak watermelon season y’all! They just don’t come any sweeter or juicier any other time of year. And if you’re like me you can’t get enough of them. I also can’t get enough margaritas. So why not combine the two? Oh, and for good measure throw in some fresh mint to just polish it off. So dust off that blender and get going!Watermelon Margarita

1/4 cup orange juice

1 tablespoon lime juice
