It’s Friday ya’ll!!

Thank freaking goodness too, because this has been the longest, most stressful week ever.

While I am secretly over here, waiting for fall, it’s still a million degrees here in Houston. So this weekend, you can catch me patiently waiting for fall, by the pool, with this sexy margarita in hand.

Did I also mention it’s skinny and kind of good for you??

This is because its main ingredient is watermelon. &&& watermelon is the shit ya’ll.

Here’s why

Watermelon is made up of 92% water and is soaked with tons of nutrients like vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. Plus it’s super detoxifying. According to this source, it’s also both a fruit AND vegetable.

I’m sold

Also, try and get a high quality tequila. The higher the quality, the less of a chance for a hangover. Tequila also aids in digestion, plus a bunch of other fantastic facts. I’m serious, just ask Forbes.

It also doesn’t hurt that this drink is ridiculously pretty too.

Ingredients

1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
3 /4 cup white tequila
