RECIPE: Watermelon Margarita

Happy Pride! This year we celebrate 50 years since our forefathers took a stand at Stonewall. I am a proud gay man, a proud Mexican-American and thankful that we have come this far. Let’s celebrate, realize how far we have come, and look at what else we need to fight for! This cocktail tastes like summer - ¡ vamos fiestar !
