Watermelon to me always says “summer”. Being the cheapskate that I am, I sprung for the buy one, get one watermelon deal. Suppressing the urge to only eat it as fruit like a sucker, I turned them into the easiest margaritas ever. The mint helps add a bit of brightness to it. If you don’t have triple sec, a touch of other citrus helps. Salt of course, is optional.
