Cucumber-Melon Refresher



Heat wave = loads of fantastic drink recipes.

This one is super similar to the Watermelon Margaritas, but kid-friendly (or not, your call).  Super awesome on a hot day and so so refreshing!


Cucumber-Melon Refresher
Adapted from TheKitchn

1 cup seedless watermelon, cut in chunks
½ cup cucumber, peeled & seeded
1 sprig mint, 6-8 leaves
½ cup lemon-lime soda, such as Sprite
1 oz tequila (optional)


Place the watermelon, cucumber and the mint into a blender.  Blend until smooth.  Strain the mixture into a bowl through a fine mesh sieve or paper towel lined colander.

Pour the juice into a tall glass.  Stir in the lemon-lime soda and tequila (if using).  Add ice, if desired.

Makes 1 (1 ½ cup) refresher
