Minty Watermelon Cooler

Minty Watermelon Cooler

Minty Watermelon Cooler made with fresh watermelon, lime juice, and mint is a delicious way to beat the heat! A few splashes of vodka or rum easily ramp it up into a grown-up cocktail!

After weathering triple-digit temperatures in Vegas last week, I promised myself I will be more appreciative and will no longer whine about Southern California weather. But OMG, ninety degrees today, I spent the whole afternoon sprawled out like a sloth in our patio with a gallon-size jug of watermelon cooler to keep me company. Come to think of it, was that even a bad thing? I actually enjoyed doing nothing except take sips gulps of my drink.

This watermelon cooler is a super refreshing drink you’d want all summer long. With fresh watermelon, lime juice, and mint blended together, it’s a delicious way to beat the heat.  If you want something a little more grown-up, a few splashes of rum or vodka will easily pump this up for adult fun.

Other than being cool and refreshing, it’s also a healthy way to hydrate. You get all the delicious flavors of summer at less than 50 calories per serving. Without the vodka, of course.
