You know it’s officially “watermelon season” when restaurants start rolling out watermelon-themed food and drink specials. You can find watermelon on many menus (some all year long, if you’re lucky), but Chili’s is taking the season to new, tastier level with its line of watermelon-themed drinks.

Throughout the spring and into the summer, the restaurant is offering not one, not two, but three beverages featuring the season’s greatest fruit. The drinks include the following:

Watermelon Margarita – Tequila, fresh watermelon puree and house-made sour.

Watermelon Cooler – Vodka, lemonade and fresh watermelon puree.

Watermelon Lemonade – A refreshing combination of two great flavors (non-alcoholic)

I’ll pay a visit to my local Chili’s next week to sample all three specials (all in the name of research, of course), and I’ll provide a review and photos in a blog entry later this month. In the meantime, I’m happy to announce that you, too, can try the drinks thanks to this month’s What About Watermelon prize – a $50 Chili’s gift card.

The gift card is more than enough to cover all three drinks, so feel free to also grab some dinner while you’re there. What you choose to pair with your Watermelon Margarita or Watermelon Cooler is up to you. Personally, I’ll probably opt for the Mushroom Swiss Burger or the Santa Fe Chicken Quesadillas.

I’ll give away the Chili’s gift card to one commenter chosen at random from all the comments left on the blog this month. To get the conversation started, leave a comment below with which of the three Chili’s watermelon drinks you’d like to try most!
