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!

-Melt your chocolate or icing in a microwave safe bowl. Do this in 30 second increments at a time and stir as you go. Continue these steps until it is completely melted and silky. (Again, the icing will be a much smoother turn out)
