Margaritas to sip on with your gal pals.
During the summer, there is nothing more that I want to do than sip on delicious margaritas while hanging out with friends. Throw in some yummy barbecue food or tacos, and you have a tasty, fun-filled night ahead of you.
Margaritas always remind me of summer, perhaps because I have enjoyed them at least a few times on beach vacations. Certain flavors especially bring out the relaxed warmth on gorgeous nights in the summer. Here is a list of the best summer margarita recipes to try out as we move into hotter temperatures.

Something about watermelon just screams summer. Add in the fact that this drink is made into a frozen slush, and you can’t deny it’s a great drink for the hottest season of the year.

Homemade Pineapple Margaritas
Pineapple margaritas are another excellent option for a summer drink choice. I tend to lean toward any tropical fruit I can get my hands on in the warmer months. It makes me feel as if I’m on vacation down in Mexico without purchasing plane tickets!
