Watermelon Margaritas

Photo: Lee Harrelson; Styling: Ana Kelly, Mindi Shapiro

Because of the sweetness of the watermelon this margarita doesn't need much sugar, so one glass has only 105 calories. A little bit of fresh lime juice brightens the drink and adds a welcome tanginess. For a special touch, rim your glasses with sugar and garnish with lime wedges and watermelon balls.
