Watermelon Margaritas | Deuce Cities Henhouse
Here’s a recipe for the-old-bar-cart-cookbook. I needed a lot of these last weekend when I discovered that Ikea gave me 12 wrong cabinets. There is nothing like realizing the 3 hours you spent playing musical chairs with vehicles, bribing someone to watch your kids, and then waiting hours at an Ikea fulfillment area (which just so happens to be located next to the world’s squeakiest (like loose your god damn mind squeaky) automatic sliding door) was all done in vane. A watermelon cocktail was the only thing I needed after making this gut wrenching discovery.

Make this when Ikea does you wrong!
