This is it.

The color of summer! The fruit of summer! The drinks of summer!

I’m gonna be totally honest with you. These cocktails happened by mistake. But sometimes the best things happen by mistake, right?

I bought a watermelon and decided I was going to cut it all up at once (you know, #mealprep) and keep it in the fridge for the week. I picked out a small watermelon; small being the key word, so that I wouldn’t be inundated with it. Turns out even small watermelons produce way more than what could fit in my empty Pyrex containers. P.S. I love the square ones.

Anyhoo, I froze a bunch of the cubed watermelon on a cookie sheet and decided that a frozen cocktail (or mocktail!) was definitely the way to go.

Let’s start with the mocktail. It’s super simple – all you need is some watermelon slush, club soda, and a few extra goodies! I opted for a sprig of rosemary and a few raspberries. I love smelling the rosemary as you are sipping the drink.

Next up: the Frozen Watermelon Spritzer (my fave!). Somehow this is even simpler than the mocktail. Watermelon slush + prosecco = summer in a cup. It’s simple math people.

And last but not least – the Frozen Watermelon Smash. This is Pat’s favorite and I happen to think it is quite wonderful as well! If you are a gin drinker, you will LOVE this. It’s slightly more complex; and by more complex I mean you have to add one additional ingredient. So it’s really not all that bad!

      Thanks Bev! I can just picture myself on a bike, with a watermelon, and sweating like no other… not a pretty sight! And I just watched your VLOG – BC looks incredible and so so gorgeous! I’m sorry the work side of the trip was a little disappointing, but just know that you are gorgeous and I cannot wait to see the lifestyle shots you are in the upcoming catalog!
