Another month in quarantine, another margarita recipe!
This month, I wanted to make something that was summery, refreshing, and features some of my favorite ingredients. I'm a huge fan of incorporating sparkling water into cocktails. It helps bring the bubbles and cut on the calories. During this time, I doubt I'm the only one trying to cut out a few of those!
It's watermelon season! I absolutely love watermelon in the summer time - it just hits different. If you have a bit of extra watermelon laying around (because for some reason humans - myself included - insist on buying a melon that is 1/2 our bodyweight, so I always do), grab it out of fridge & get ready to enjoy a delicious sparkling watermelon marg!
Mix up this recipe & let me know if you felt as fancy as I did enjoying it. $14 artisanal cocktail menu? We don't know her.
That's Irish for cheers!
