Hola folks, it’s true, I’m actually back again! Surprising, eh?
Today I want to share a fabulous summer drink recipe that I could honestly drink all day erryday. Especially right in the middle of this sweaty summer.
It all started with these two posts my lovely mother put on her blog The Foodie Affair. They are both resplendent with watermelony goodness and as soon as I read them I was overcome with the need to drink all the watermelons in the world in tasty drink form.
The first one seduced me with its simplicity, and then the second with its alcohol content. Since I had neither tequila nor triple sec, but DID possess a tasty bottle of rum, I decided to go with the first recipe and booze it up.
Since I had a birthday barbecue to attend I figured what better than gifts of boozy watermelon refreshment?
Check out my mom’s recipe. I followed it exactly (just quadrupled) and used her advice and skipped out on ice and froze the watermelon instead. Then I added some rum (arguably the most important change I could possibly make). Basically it was in typical recent-college-student-fashion: I added a shot for each serving then some extra splashes for good measure. My main squeeze Miguelito pointed out that since the recipe has coconut water it ostensibly cures the hangover before it even begins! (Did you know that coconut water cures the alcohol related ills? Srsly yo).
Needless to say this drink is a complete success. Fresh, bright, and easy as (boozy watermelon) pie! TRY IT
