Happy Hour: Watermelon & Lime Cocktail

Miss Megan asked me to come up with a cocktail recipe for her blog, Crazybananas. She was thinking watermelon and lime, so I came up with a couple of options. We had a lot of fun testing both and discussing world issues. (Okay, we may have been gossiping.)

You’ll find our favorite recipe on her blog, a Vodka Limeade with Watermelon Ice Cubes, which is pretty delicious. The watermelon ice cubes are so fun and would be great in a non-alcoholic version if that’s your thing. I think kids would love them in lemonade.

This one uses the same ingredients, but in a different way. So, you could also try both this weekend and choose your own favorite. No judgement here. Continue reading

If you’ve never swung by her blog, you are missing out. The photography is gorgeous, and the recipes are something special. She features a lot of really beautiful drink recipes. Continue reading
