Frozen Margarita Recipe

This frozen watermelon margarita recipe is so fruity and delicious! I love sipping on something coooold and icy in the midst of summer. A classic margarita is great, but there’s something about blended, frozen margaritas that makes you feel like you’re on a tropical vacation…especially if you add those cute little paper umbrellas, which I highly recommend. Sipping one of these by the pool on a hot summer day…I can’t think of anything better!
