    You guys are sophisticated drinkers!
    I am not. I will give your recipes a try, especially the watermelon marg.
    I *heart* tequila.

    When I drink I do so with great purpose (usually out of a mason jar). Here is my go to:

    Beer Margarita

    12oz frozen limeade
    12oz tequila
    12oz Corona
    12oz Sprite or 7up

    Dump non-fizzy stuff in a pitcher. Mash out the limeade lumps. Add fizzy ingredients and stir. Pour over rocks in salted-rim glass.
    Also, insulin if you need it.

    Don't keep your knives face up in the dish drain. You might end up getting stabbed.

    OMG Beki - they were SO good!

    They really do make a nice presentation if you are entertaining...but they are also delicious and go down real easy!! I think they're deceiving because they don't taste all that strong - but in reality, you're drinking a glass of champagne w/ 1 1/2 shots of vodka in it.

    Can anyone tell me if pear juice is sweet? And well...Does it taste like pears?

    Would it be over kill w/ pear vodka and pear fizzy water?

    Is there any other juice or liquer that would mix well with the above?

    I'm trying to make a drink w/ the ingredients I have - all I have to buy is the pear juice....
