I made a tasty fruit salad for my girls on Wednesday. I couldn’t help but save a few slices for a bright melon margarita. The color reminds me of summer weekends spent at the beach with family. With our feet in the hot sand we would snack on cold melon. Have a wonderful weekend! Sweet Life

Nothing like an icy cold slice of cantaloupe on a hot day. In a margarita, it becomes downright wicked — in the best of ways. 😉
