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!
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
