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.

Recipe Notes

  • 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!
  • Freezing the watermelon will slow down your drink making, but the results are worth it in the end!
