I had my first spicy margarita recently. If you know me, I don’t like spicy things. But ever since I’ve had that spicy marg, I was hooked and I’ve been wanting to create my own. Fresh watermelon, limes and jalapenos makes this drink soooo refreshing and the perfect contrast of heat and coolness. Scroll down below for my Spicy watermelon margarita recipe.

And check out this super cute salt rimmer too!

Pineapple grapefruit paloma

Pineapple grapefruit paloma

Meet margarita’s ruby red cousin – the Paloma. Personally, I think it’s more refreshing than a traditional marg and I love the pink color.  This pineapple grapefruit paloma is a refreshing, sweet twist.

Serve it up for Cinco de Mayo, lounging poolside, brunching with your girlfriends or just about any time.
