[Link Up] Berry Watermelon Cocktail

For the Fourth of July Recipe Link Up, I was paired with Kelly from DetteCakes.  She made this completely pinnable and mouth watering berry watermelon cocktail.  I decided to make a few tweaks to our version and go more in the smoothie direction since I'm all about getting Ashlynn to drink her daily "mooth-vie" to keep up the potty progress.  So because of the underage drinker, I skipped the watermelon vodka and the soda as well.

I eyeballed the ingredients to yield roughly about two drinks - one for her and one for me!


Ingredients
Watermelon
Frozen blueberries (about a handful)
Frozen Strawberry (and 4 large whole berries)

Yup.  That was it.

I have never blended watermelon before, but I think I may have a new hobby and I can see why the addition of some vodka and sprite would make this the best summer cocktail.  As for our smoothie version, Ashlynn loved  the "strawberrymelon".  And it hydrated her like no other!

I can't wait to see everyone else's recipes!  Thanks for linking up with us!

  1. So glad Ashlynn loved her "mooth-vie" and you turned it into something she could drink! I'll have to try that for Odette when potty training rolls around for us!

  2. No joke, girl usually only goes a few times a day- has since she turned one. She just has a bladder of steel. She went like 3x in 3 hours after drinking this. Great for practice!.... and delicious too! Will have to make your version for date-in night :)
