Melon Margaritas

Living in California, we really love fresh fruit and enjoying the outdoors and we also love Melon Margaritas! With Cinco de Mayo upon us, I thought I would come up with a fresh fruit drink to celebrate. I think this is light, fresh, fruity and refreshing. Watermelon, honeydew melon and fresh lime juice combine for a sweet drink with a hint of sour.

I wanted to add a little fun so I decided to add red sugar to the rim of the glasses. I dipped the glass in water first, then into the red sugar. The sugar melts far faster than salt so you need to work quickly. For any areas where there were gaps, I rolled the glass edge in the sugar.
