Happy almost Friday! I’m pretty excited for the weekend because I need a vacation after my vacation! Don’t you hate that?
We’re wrapping up our summer roadtrip today with an 8 hour drive from New Orleans back to Fort Hood. And by 8 hours, I probably mean 10 because I anticipate lots of stops along the way. I see doughnuts, Happy Meals, lots of Starbucks, and probably an ice cream cone in my future. Hey, I’m gonna live it up on my last day of vacay!
To get you ready for the weekend, I’m sharing this Spiked Watermelon Lemonade! I made it last week before we left for our trip because I knew I needed to cut the grass but I didn’t actually know how to cut the grass. Yes, I know that’s ridiculous.
I knew some lemonade would help. I knew a spiked lemonade would really help.
I’m obsessed with all things watermelon this year (every year, really) and this was so perfect. You know that watermelon lemonade candle from Bath and Body Works that you currently have 7 of? Just me? Anyway, this tastes like that smells. But better.
Because tequila. Duh.
Make sure you follow me around the internet!
- juice of 2 lemons
- 1 cup fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 medium seedless watermelon rind removed and cut into chunks
- 1 cup tequila
Add lemon juice, mint leaves, and sugar to a pitcher. Stir until the sugar is dissolved.
In a blender, puree the watermelon until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer. You should have about 8 cups of liquid - add that to the pitcher with the lemon juice mixture. Stir in tequila. Serve on ice.
