Happy Fourth to you all! Let’s make a toast with my Watermelon Blueberry Firecrackers. Now, if you are looking for crazy mixes and sweet sugary stuff for your drinks then this is not the recipe for you. Sorry guys, I am a plain Jane when it comes to my cocktails. The simpler the better! So we have our watermelon for the red, blueberries for the blue and coconut juice (OK, so it’s clear, but the fruit itself is white which has to count for something!) I’ve read so many articles on drinking coconut water to hydrate and it is even even recommended for hangovers! I bet this drink may lower that next day headache right from the start.
- 3 oz. good quality vodka
- 6 oz. coconut water (I highly recommend a flavor if you can find)
- 1/2 cup seedless cubed watermelon
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries washed
1.) Add watermelon, blueberries & Vodka to a high ball glass and place in freezer to let chill for at least 30 minutes. (Fruit and glass should be slightly frosty when you remove it, the watermelon cubes will act similar to delicious ice cubes)
2.) Pour in coconut water and stir until combined.
3.) Garnish with a little fresh mint, some festive straws and enjoy!
