Just in time for the fourth of July, I found a perfect drink to celebrate with. This fun summer recipe comes from the June 2012 issue of “Yoga Journal”. Make sure you frost your glasses beforehand, as it adds to the fun of this blended drink. Tequila is a must, if adults are present. I loved the way it tasted with this drink. The recipe calls for this to be frozen, but I don’t think that’s totally necessary. It didn’t last that long at our house. It definitely needs to be cold though, so make sure you at least chill it in the fridge. You could try freezing your watermelon cubes and then blending them. It’d make it (a bit) harder to blend, but it’d be super cold right off the bat.
