Melon Jalapeño Basil Margaritas

These margaritas are fresh, fruity, light and delicious. I’m even tempted to say they are healthier than the average margarita, since there is no added sugar and everyone knows that melons are good for you. Any type of sweet green melon should work well so we can make them anywhere or anytime we are in a margarita mood.
