    Everything looks delish! And the way they’re photographed makes them even more mouth-watering! Arrgh the temptation to lick the screen.

    yummy and pretty! definitely working these in with the festivities!

  • 15. Kim  |  July 3rd, 2014 at 9:00 pm

    You are right on! I had a drink the other night at Bonefish and it was similar to the watermelon with jalepeno but was more of a citrus drink with a jalapeno kick. It was hand down the best drink I ever had! Do you do your own photographs? They look amazing. Have a happy and safe 4th!
