Happy Hour: Watermelon Vodka Cooler


You didn't think I was going to let National Watermelon Day pass without featuring a watermelon cocktail did you?!? Watermelon, while wonderfully delicious in its pure unadulterated form, is also extremely excellent pureed and used as a basis for a cocktail. Combine it with lemon vodka, simple syrup, and fresh berries, watermelon makes this vibrantly colored drinkie perfectly refreshing on a hot summer afternoon. With a blitz of a blender, this concoction comes together in seconds. To get the recipe and salute watermelon,


Watermelon Vodka Cooler
From Cook (Almost) Anything

½ cup berries of your choice

mazlie - do a google search for "food holidays" - there are many resources out there (some of them with conflicting info) - before we post a day as a national day here on YumSugar, we always make sure that it's listed in several places. hope that helps!

I made something like that a lot last summer. Instead of berries, I used berry juice and instead of lemon vodka, I went with plain old grey goose, and I didn't add any sugar (I figure I got enough of that from the berry juice). It was delicious and I think I'm craving one right now!
