We are near those sun kissed summer days where the sun stays up longer and drinks taste a little better! Where weekends are filled with pool parties and relaxing days by the coast. The best part about summer are the bright and colorful foods we bring into our food regimens, like this summer staple we are loving this year (actually every summer)... Watermelon! Today's Watermelon Lime Refresher takes your taste buds on an invigorating and refreshing journey with the fresh ingredients we've used.
So let's get to making this summer favorite!
Ingredients you'll need include:
- One medium sized watermelon or pre-sliced watermelon
- 1 cup of coconut water
- 3 limes
- 1 cup of sparkling water
- 1/2 cup of watermelon flavored Vodka, or vodka of your choice
Total time to make: 10 minutes
In a blender you first want to puree your watermelon to later add to the drink. In your blender add in 3 cups of diced watermelon and 1 cup of coconut water and blend for 2-3 minutes until watermelon is pureed.
Then you want to slice two limes in half and squeeze them into your shaker. Add in your 1 cup of sparkling water, 1 cup of ice, and your watermelon puree. Shake well until the drink is chilled and evenly mixed. Then pour this over ice in smaller glasses and garnish with a sliced lime or piece of watermelon and enjoy!!!
This is a great drink to mix together on your next summer outing with friends and family. You can transport all of the ingredients in our Freezable Watermelon Party Lunch Bag to keep items cool and upright, preventing spillage. You can then easily mix together a refresher for the adults and another version without alcohol the kids can enjoy! Don't forget to drink responsibly ;)
