The rain has left us for a few days, and the sun is shining bright!  No, I am not outside enjoying it because…..

1) I am here at the computer

2) I need to go upstairs and finish painting the wood trim.  The appraiser will be here Thursday…YIKES!

3) The pollen counts are off the charts

So I am looking out my windows at the gorgeous day, and it still makes me happy 🙂  These watermelon margaritas, make me even happier!  The original recipe comes from Sheryl Crow’s Cookbook “if it makes you healthy”.  The recipe is too large to make in one batch, so you have to break it down and make smaller batches.  Well then your alcohol concentrations will be out of whack, so I have split the recipe for you and added pretty pictures…..you’re welcome!

Here is a picture of the CABO WABO® Tequila, okay not a good one, but it will give you an idea of what the bottle looks like in case you were curious…..

CABO WABO® is Sammy Hagar’s brand of tequila, yes the former lead singer of Van Halen.  I was curious to see if it was worth the hype, and it tastes great in these margaritas!

    This recipe sounds delicious. We recently tried a recipe but it didn’t have sugar and was not very sweet! I am going to try this one soon.
