Sure you could drink a regular margarita. But have you considered a watermelon margarita instead? It’s like a grown-up slushee in the best possible way, and ever so refreshing. You can blitz the ingredients to your desired thickness, but we like blended until it reaches a fairly liquid state. You can always add ice cubes to the glass if desired.
