It's only April, right?
Cause this is happening:
And that looks like summer to me, not spring. I'm not complaining.
Summer to me means margaritas, swimsuits on sale at target, eating lunch on the lawn, sleeping with the windows open, farmers markets, a perpetually panting cattle dog, and the smell of SPF 30.
So to embrace the spirit of the season, I bring you a refreshing beverage.
Watermelon Lemonade Slushy
8 lemonade ice cubes
3 cups watermelon
A day in advance, pour your favorite lemonade in ice cube trays and freeze. Store in plastic bags all summer long.
Remove rind from watermelon.
Place ingredients in blender and let 'er rip.
Pour into a glass, garnish with a slice of watermelon, and relax!
The sweet lemonade adds all the sugar you will need, even if your watermelon is not super sweet. If you're feeling saucy, add a shot of tequila, rum, or vodka. Or you could add 1/2 c. of coconut water for a more tropical flavor and hydration power. This is a great refreshing treat and is very low calorie. Much better than a margarita or a 7-11 slushy. Not that I won't be consuming plenty of those this summer...
Hydrate responsibly! It's only Monday!
