Watermelon Wine Margarita

by James Stevenson

I had some left over red wine so I decided to make a cocktail using it. I wanted to enhance the flavor with summer so I made up some quick watermelon juice to add to the mix. Everything was shaken up with ice and served on the rocks. The sugar rim added some additional sweetness that married well with the tartness of the red wine. Wine up your day with this awesome Margarita!
