Summer Drink Recipes - Watermelon Cooler - A Good Afternoon Drink with a Cigar




Another Summer drink that will surely cool you off during the hot sunny days specially if you are smoking your cigar outdoor. Watermelons are summer fruits which has a very high water content level as well as good source of fiber. They are good thirst quenchers and there is nothing better than having a cold watermelon to eat on a hot sunny day! If you like watermelons, then you will love this drink!


Watermelon Cooler - Lets go through the Ingredients:


  • 800grams de-seeded Watermelon flesh
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar (optional if the watermelon wasn't sweet enough)
  • 12 Mint leaves (keep one stem for decoration)
  • 2 small limes freshly squeezed juice
  • 30ml Havana Club 3 anos (optional)
  • plenty of crushed Ice
  • Watermelon sliced triangle for decoration.


In a blender, toss in the watermelon, sugar & lime juice and blend until everything is liquidized. Then throw in the mint leaves and pulse the blender a 5 to 8 times until the leaves are shredded. We don't want the mint leaves to be chopped into tiny pieces.

In a cocktail shaker, put in half a cup of crushed ice and the optional Havana Club along with the juice from the blender. Close the shaker and dance like crazy with it for a few seconds. Pour everything in your long cocktail glass, you can add more crushed ice if you want, throw in the mint stem and wedge with Watermelon slice on the rim.


Now that one sexy cocktail!

Enjoy!
