Now that the weather is warming up, it's time to break out the 'these go down way too easy' summer cocktails. A couple of weeks back, after I posted the watermelon caprese salad recipe, I found myself with more watermelon than I could eat so...I cut it up and put it in the blender with some fresh mint from the garden. Mixed with frozen lemonade and vodka, it made a surprisingly easy, delicious and refreshing drink, pretty too! It would even taste great sans alcohol, or with tequila!
6 cups of watermelon chunks
1 can Minute Maid (or other brand but I like MM) frozen Lemonade
2 cans water
6 fresh mint leaves
Put all in a blender and purée. Pour over ice and add a healthy shot of vodka (or tequila). Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and a lemon slice. Makes enough for about 8.
