Did you watch Honey Boo Boo last night?! Tell me you had your scratch & sniff card! Because I know I did.
We actually made a family grocery store run a few days ago to get the scratch & sniff card and ended up with a ginormous watermelon too. Normally when summer rolls around and I crave watermelon, I just buy one of the tiny ones or even some some packaged slices because I know no one else will eat it. But we ended up with that huge one and then it sat on our counter for 24 hours before I gave up on anyone else eating it and made a cocktail.
This is probably one of my favorite drinks I’ve ever made. It was sweet but still tart and the cubes of watermelon on top made it super refreshing. It’s the perfect summer drink! Better make it before the watermelons disappear!
Nicole made a banana daiquiri! I’m kind of obsessed with both bananas and coconut milk right now so I’m thinking that daiquiri will be how I use the rest of my rum.
