I love the smell of charcoal! Don’t judge me, but there’s something about the smell of charcoal coming off a grill that reminds me of warm weather. If you live anywhere in the Northeast like me, you know how desperate we are for warm weather…and it looks like it has finally arrived just in time for Memorial Day Weekend! I am definitely looking forward to the long weekend, and I am secretly hoping and praying that someone in my family hosts a barbeque at some point so that I can
EAT. smell the charcoal!
No Summer barbeque is complete without a slice of juicy watermelon. The perfect natural dessert! The watermelon is the inspiration for this week’s recipe. The Watermelon Martini is delicious and refreshing, and perfect for your Memorial Day barbeque. It’s also easy to make, and definitely a crowd pleaser. Try it out, and let me know what you think!
