Wat.er.mel.on.

Today, I discovered 2 watermelons nestled among the pumpkins on my front porch.

The watermelon fairy was here.

And, what do you do when life gives you watermelons?

Make Watermelon Margaritas.

Luckily, the weather man isn't paying any attention to the fact that it is almost October. 80-degree days are perfect for sipping a cocktail on the patio.

(adapted from Cooking Light)

3 1/2 cups watermelon, cubed and seeded
1/4 - 1/2 cup tequila
2-4 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon Triple Sec
crushed ice
lime wedges
sugar

Combine watermelon, tequila, sugar, lime juice, and Triple Sec in a blender; process until smooth.
Rub the rim of glasses with a lime wedge and invert onto a saucer filled with sugar to coat.
Fill the glasses with crushed ice, add margarita mixture.
Garnish with additional lime wedges. (Serves 6)
