Made with juicy watermelon, raw honey, and a few sprigs of fresh mint, today I couldn’t be more excited to share my Frozen Watermelon Lime Margaritas – ‘the hard stuff’ with a healthful twist. Perfect for summer barbecues, this naturally sweetened, but not too sweet seasonal sip is light, cooling, and irresistibly fresh. A slushy you can feel good about; the best of every world.

Note: To make your margarita a refreshing watermelon slushy, simply substitute equal parts tequila for coconut water. Blend and enjoy!
