Recipe: Fresh Watermelon Coolers

Refreshing Watermelon Cocktails

It's Canada Day and that means backyard hangs, barbeques, picnics and parties. We started our holiday Monday off with this delicious and refreshing drink at breakfast. It took less than ten minutes to make, but it was truly a special and celebratory concoction.

We had a virgin version of this drink but if you like you can always spike it with some vodka for a drink to take you from day to night.

What I love about this recipe is that it is healthy - no added sugar or sweetners, just pure, clean ingredients. This makes it a guilt-free indulgence that looks pretty and tastes like summer. Here's how to make it:

Watermelon Cooler

Makes 2-4 Servings (depends on your glass)
Preparation time: 15 minutes
1/2 cup of ice
2 cups of fresh watermelon, cubed
1 lime, juiced
splash of water
mint to garnish
lime zest to garnish
2 oz vodka (optional)

1) In a blender, combine watermelon, water and ice. Blend until desired consistency is reached.

2) Add fresh lime juice and vodka(optional), stir on low to combine.

3) Pour into glasses and garnish with lime zest and mint sprig.

Enjoy on the patio all summer long!
