Summer Sippin’

July 14, 2020 — by Kailea Taitano

Summer’s here and it’s time to cheers! Quench your thirst with this *refreshing* Strawberry Watermelon Punch. This cocktail is perfect for a hot summer day! You can enjoy this drink for a quick refresh while lounging out by the pool or lounging inside to stay cool!

To enjoy this cocktail you will need: 

Step 1: Cut the watermelon into cubes and place 2 cups into a blender. Next, wash a handful of strawberries and cut into fourths, adding 1 cup into the blender. Blend both ingredients until smooth!

 **OPTIONAL: Instead of ice cubes, place your leftover fruit in the freezer to add to your drink to keep it cool!

Step 2: Strain blended mixture through a strainer in a separate container to remove the pulp. Once the pulp has been removed, pour back into the blender!

Step 3: Squeeze 6 lime wedges into the blended mixture and add 1-2  tablespoons of Maple Syrup to sweeten up the Strawberry Watermelon juice. (If you want a sweeter mixture, you can mix in more Maple syrup!) Blend the mixture. 

Step 4: Fill your favorite glass with frozen fruit or ice cubes!

Step 5: Add in some mint and pour in 1-2oz of Simple Vodka to the glass and stir in your strawberry watermelon juice mixture!

Step 6: Finish off the glass with a sliced strawberry, watermelon, or lime if desired. You can even use an eco-friendly paper, silicone, or metal straw to enjoy your cocktail!

We’ve partnered with @simplevodka, a gluten-free potato vodka that is sustainably sourced and provides 20 meals to those in need in the US for each bottle purchased. They have donated over one million meals to those in need through local and national relief organizations since launching in 2017!

Throughout the month of July, Simple Vodka is doubling its usual donation of 20 meals for every bottle sold to 40 meals! You can purchase your bottle online with the code 1DRINK2MEALS for 20% off your order, Cheers PV Babes!

    Great idea for when we can’t go on vacation, to bring vacation to us at home! Super easy recipe, I added Tajin on the rim!
