Happy Hour [24/7/20]

You don’t have to drink alone.

Watermelon is the best thing about summer. You can keep your cantaloupe and honeydew, gimme all the watermelon. Not matter how much of it I eat I never get tired of it. It took me a while to learn to pick a good one. I usually look for a yellow field spot, webbing, and a dull skin. Real Simple has some tips for choosing the sweetest melon.

Every year, at the start of the season, I tell myself I’m going to make watermelon cocktails, salad, and soup. But I never do. I’m too lazy and too busy stuffing it into my watermelon greedy mouth. But not this year! I swear, this weekend I’m buying another watermelon, and making margaritas.

I say this every summer, but this year I mean it. I say that every summer too. Got any favorite melon recipes I can not make?
