 Summer Sipping

July is prime melon season. Fresh, juicy and sweet, watermelons are the crowd-pleasing fruit to beat summer’s heat. While it is a must-have when sliced and served chilled at barbecues and 4th of July picnics, Cha Cha’s Latin Kitchen in Brea concocted something even better: the watermelon margarita. So ignite your taste buds while sipping on this refreshing cocktail. And, since July 24 is national Tequila Day, there’s no better way to celebrate.
