Recipe: Watermelon Margarita

Happy sunny summer day everyone! ;) Today I've got another recipe for you which I made for my tropical food table some weeks ago: I'm showing you how to make a super delicous and really refreshing watermelon margarita.

Ingredients for your Watermelon Margarita

 
You need:
- Tequila
- Triple sec
- A watermelon
- Two fresh limes
- Sugar
- Honey
- Water
- Ice cubes

The amount of alcohol and fruit depends on how you want your cocktail to be. I rather like it fruity, so I use only a little bit of alcohol and much watermelon.

How to Make your Watermelon Margarita

First of all, juice the watermelon in a juicing machine or - more simple - use a mixer to puree it. Add sec, tequila and some fresh lime juice. Mix it. Then use honey (or lime juice) and sugar to decorate the cocktail glasses' rim, put ice cubes inside and pour the cocktail mixture into your glasses.
For decoration, hang watermelon slices and lime slices onto the rim of your glasses.

Enjoy and have a lovely day! :)

DIY Video with DaWanda: Flower Crown

Hello my dear readers! While you are all hopefully still enjoying those awesome summer days, I have been preparing a new DIY video with DaWanda for you: this time, I'm showing you how to make a super pretty flower crown out of artificial plastic flowers. Of course this can't ever beat a floral crown with freshly picked flowers from the garden, but it lasts forever and you can use it each year for music festival, garden parties, weddings, birthday celebrations, outfit photos or even just to brighten up everyday life.
So let's get started:

Watch my Flower Crown DIY Video:

Yippie, I hope you had fun watching the video! :) In addition, here are some photos for you and even a photo overview of the materials you need:

Supplies for a Flower Crown:

What you need:
- Artificial plastic flowers
- A plier
- Green wire
- Self-adhesive flower masking tape in green

Your Handmade Flower Crown:

The flower crown that I made has a huge flower collection at its front and is rather a statement piece than a plain crown. I love it!
Have fun making your own flower crown with the help of this video and make sure to share photos afterwards, can't wait to see them! :)
Happy day,
