Watermelon-tini and Fish Tacos


Since it was so strangely warm on Saturday, we had to enjoy a dinner to match the weather. So Johan made super refreshing watermelon-tinis, and I made deliciously fresh fish tacos with pineapple salsa, and lime sour cream. Delicious!

Want to learn how to make them?
