Watermelon Mint Coolers

Our latest refreshing concoction, Watermelon Mint Coolers. We have been drinking these on repeat every weekend. On these 90 degree plus Maryland afternoons there is nothing we crave more than something ice cold and has such a crisp flavor. And the lil' buzz after a few of these coolers is quite nice as well.


From our kitchen to yours, cheers!

For anyone who would prefer a mocktail, just leave out the vodka & still just as crispy and refreshing! Vodka tends to take on whatever taste the drink is filled with. Many times when you create a mocktail from an alcoholic drink, you need to substitute the alcohol with something else. Not this Watermelon Mint Cooler! Just leave out the vodka and you have the perfect summer time, backyard, sunshine drink.


Hey, maybe add a little umbrella for effect because we all know with the umbrella the drink tastes a million times better! And I also always envision that I am sitting on a beach somewhere instead of in my backyard in the city of Baltimore.

Ingredients


  • 1 cups watermelon cut up
  • 5 mint leaves
  • ½ lime squeezed
  • seltzer to top the drink off
  • 1½ oz vodka

Instructions


In a blender add the 2 cups of cut up watermelon and blend until smooth
Into a cup, squeeze in half of a lime
Slap the mint to activate and add to the cup with lime juice
Muddle the mint and lime juice to really extract the flavor. If you like your drink a bit sweeter this is a chance to add a little agave, only about ½ tsp
Add ice to the cup with lime juice and mint
Pour in vodka and fill the cup about ⅔ with the blended watermelon
Fill the rest of the cup with seltzer, stir and serve (with an umbrella of course!)

Tips

  • If you decided on a flavored vodka, weirdly enough we have found that the Kettle One Cucumber Mint Vodka is actually perfect with this. But we do prefer just a plain Titos.
  • If you are not a big vodka person, than rum is quite delicious with this Watermelon Mint Cooler. If you are able to choose, white rum with this is more preferable than a darker rum.
