The temperatures have started to soar around where I live, and I’ve been hearing that we are gearing up for one of the hottest summers yet! As an Always-Cold myself (LOL), I can’t say that I’m particularly upset over this news. However! Being comfortable in the heat has so much to do with staying cool and hydrated. And the same goes for my kids! I have a really yummy Watermelon and Mint Blended Lemonade that I love serving in the warmer months. It’s so simple, easy, and uses seasonal ingredients so I thought I would share it! Plus, it’s the most delicious cocktail for grownups when you add the alcohol of your choice. My pick for this is vodka.
Now, why “blended,” you ask? Well, it’s just my easy way of creating a slushy lemonade that is delicious, and doesn’t get rid of all those amazing nutrients in our fresh watermelon! I always sing the praises of my Vitamix blender because it literally pulverizes anything in its path and even has a “high” function to make juices. 10/10 recommend. You can totally make this in a regular blender though! If the juice isn’t fine enough for you, feel free to strain out some solids.
(Makes one pitcher and serves 4-6 people)
- 1 small watermelon, rind and seeds removed, roughly chopped
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 4-5 sprigs of fresh mint, leaves removed
- 3 cups lemonade
- 2 cups Vodka or White Rum (optional!). The booze can also be added to individual drinks, In which case use 2 oz per cocktail
- Fresh mint sprigs and lemons, for garnish
Add Ingredients to Blender
Blend the first 4 (or 5) ingredients on high in your blender. If the lemonade is too thick for you, strain out some of the solids using a strainer.
Garnish and Enjoy!
Garnish with fresh mint and lemons, and a sugar or salt rim on your glasses!
