Watermelon Margarita

I love this time of year when my local produce vendor is over-flowing with fresh fruit!  Watermelon is one of my favorites and it makes for a great Watermelon Margarita.

I am not a fan of sweet cocktails so I never drink margaritas made from a mix.  This one is made with only fresh ingredients, but if you like it sweeter, you can add a bit of agave nectar diluted in equal parts water or a shot of Midori.
