Jalapeno Margarita Watermelon Slices

Happy Memorial Day, friends! 

So, does that mean we are officially in summer mode? Please say, YES?!! 

I don’t know about you, but I am super pumped for summer this year. It may be because I am in full-on nesting mode with the baby and the whole remodel situation.

BUT! Besides working on the house, I am looking forward to grilling, farmers markets, local street festivals, traveling to the lake, and just enjoying the time to be with Mr. B, family and friends. 

Do you have summer plans already lined up? I would love to know what is on your summer bucket list. Speaking of a list, I kind of think I should start one since this will be the last one sans kid. Curious, what should I put on said pre-baby bucket list?

Okay, that is a lot of questions for a holiday especially on a Monday holiday. Let’s get straight to today’s recipe because it’s a boozy one. And when I say boozy it can be made without alcohol as well. Watermelon screams summer to me and I’ll be the first to admit it’s not my favorite. 

I don’t understand how folks can eat watermelon as if it’s a dessert. Chocolate is dessert. Well, I think I may have found a way to comprise because these Jalapeno Margarita Watermelon Slices are the best pre or post treat! Simply soak your watermelon in the standard margarita mix for at least an hour. If you aren’t doing the booze portion a simple syrup would work well too.
