Cucumber Watermelon Refresher

As I said on Friday, I have been playing around with different drink recipes. I love everything watermelon. I don't know what it is, but watermelon flavored things are refreshing. I bought some cubed watermelon at the store about a week ago and made a recipe from Pinterest. We thought it was pretty good, but definitely too strong and too sugary. It has you make a simple syrup and I feel like you can cut the sugar down and use a sparkling water instead. And add in lime. Anyways, I started playing around with the flavors a bit and created this Cucumber Watermelon Refresher. You could definitely make this without alcohol and I believe it would be just as amazing!

Ingredients
Seedless watermelon (about 5 one inch chunks)
Lime
Cucumber (about 5 slices with the peel cut off)
Watermelon Sparkling Water (I love the Bubly brand)

Cucumber Watermelon Refresher

Directions

1. Add in your watermelon, cucumber and fresh squeezed lime juice (I use a whole lime) to a cocktail shaker. Muddle it until the watermelon is all broken up.

2. Add in ice to your cocktail shaker. Add in 4 oz. vodka to your cocktail shaker (4 shots). Cover and shake.

3. Add ice to your glass and pour your cocktail mix over the ice. Make sure you either have a cover on your shaker so you only get the liquid or use a small strainer.

4. Fill the rest of your glass with the watermelon sparkling water.

5. Enjoy!

  9. Yum. Perfect for summer! We just tried a new drink recipe over the weekend. 4oz of Peach whiskey + .4oz of OJ + 4.0 oz champagne. It was pretty tasty. Those who didn't like whiskey enjoyed a mimosa instead. I'm not usually a whiskey person myself, but it was just a little splash of whiskey so it was pretty tasty.
