This past weekend, the fabulous Lane came over to my house in her fancy high heels and made me a drink! I asked her to put together a few fun recipes for a “Crazybananas Cocktail” and the girl did not disappoint. This recipe is perfect for those hot, end of summer days. And it contains fruit so I would consider it quite healthy! This is probably why I’m not a doctor. Well, and the lack of medical degree.
Vodka Limeade with Watermelon Ice Cubes
What you need:
- fresh mint
How you make it:
A few hours before serving, cube watermelon into ice cube size pieces. Pop into the freezer on a baking sheet for a few hours or until frozen.
Make a simple syrup. Combine 1 c. sugar with 1 c. water over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and add a sprig of mint. While the syrup cools, juice 6 limes. You’ll want about a 1/2 c. Stir together and add 2 jiggers vodka. Pour over your watermelon ice cubes. Drink with a fancier straw then the one I had on hand from Ikea. Or if you’re like me, just enjoy it regardless of the lack of pretty straws and stemware.
