Watermelons are starting to show up in the grocery stores now.  While the best ones really don’t make the scene until the later in the summer (like August in Chicago), I thought you might like a refreshingly different way to enjoy this taste of summer. 

So many varieties out there!  To get the best, look for those with a little yellow at the bottom (meaning they’ve sat on the ground and ripened in the sun, yea!)  My mom taught me the “knock, knock” test and I swear by it.  Knock on the watermelon and listen for a hollow sound (lots of water in there – which is what you want in your watermelon).

Jewel's Watermelon Margaritas RecipeTry this margarita recipe but ditch the sugar – you don’t really need it.  If you prefer rum to tequila like I do, make that way and call it a daiquiri. Or leave out the alcohol all together and just call it delicious.
