WATERMELON MINT LIMEADE RECIPE

watermelon mint limeade Back to School supplies may have hit stores already, but around these parts it's still summer! It always makes me a little sad to see those school supplies return so early...  we still have 52 days until fall, everyone! Still plenty of good summer days ahead of us.

Nothing is more summer than making cocktails and relaxing outside. So for the next few weeks, I've teamed up with Zevia to bring you some of my very favorite summer cocktails. They're perfect for lounging on the patio, hanging by the pool, or chillin' at a picnic. Let's make summer proud and go out with a bang, shall we? YEAH!

01 mix 1 cup cubed watermelon and 3-4 chopped mint leaves in a blender until juiced.

02 fill your glass of choice with ice, add in 1/2 cup of the watermelon/mint juice, 1/2 cup of limeade, and one shot of vodka.

03 top off with Lemon Lime Twist Zevia to add the perfect hint of carbonation and balance. Give it a stir and add some mint and watermelon as a garnish (if you want).

LET'S HAVE A DRINK

gummis This month I've experimented with the theory that having a drink, chillaxin' at happy hour, and gettin' one's drank on can help spark creativity. I have not been very successful. Sure, I've had fun... but my productivity has decreased. Shocking/not shocking. Although I was inspired to get creative with this photo shoot. Maybe it's working after all?

Before I say peace out to cocktail hours, mimosas, and booze popsicles, let's take things up a notch for one last drink. I love the idea of infusing my own vodka. Especially after visiting this place. If you're a fan of infused vodkas and live in Denver, go there. Get pineapple, you won't regret it.

Last weekend, I started the infusion process with jalapenos, pears, and cucumbers... and gummi bears. I was channeling my inner college student.

This weekend I'll be putting my own vodka-infused spin on a few of the following recipes... woot! Which one should I try first? Numbers 01 & 05 look wayyy good.

01 Jalapeno Bloody Mary

02 Cucumber Cape Codder

03 Pear Rosemary Cocktail

04 Jalapeno Basil Martini

05 Pear Lemon Fizz

I'm looking forward to starting a new method for sparking creativity next month. One that does not result in hangovers + Breaking Bad marathons. Although I did enjoy the Breaking Bad marathons... let's see what's coming up on the Be Creative project:
