Cinco de Mayo Cocktail: The Watermelon Margarita

The margarita is a drink with a storied history and a million variations. This Cinco de Mayo put a little twist on the old stand-by with this refreshing watermelon version.

Because of the fruit’s natural sweetness this cocktail won’t need much sugar, which means each serving is a mere 105 calories. To finish, add a bit of lime juice for a touch of citrus and rim the glasses with sugar. Garnish your completed cocktails with lime wedges and melon balls for a little extra flair and enjoy!
