Watermelon Galore!

Next Friday we welcome the wonderful National Watermelon Day, which always falls on August 3! Though not an official holiday (not recognized by Congress), it's always been recognized in the Powers household. For me, this big fruit, deserves a big day. And so, I'm serving up not one, not two, but THREE juicy recipes in honor of the tasty fruit.


My first recipes goes out to all my alcohol lovers out there. Even if you aren't a big drinker, this is the perfect drink to sip on at a summer picnic.



  • 1oz Sparkling wine
  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz fresh juiced Watermelon
  • 1 oz limeade
  • 1  oz Soda water

Put all ingredients in a ball jar.  SHAKE, SHAKE SHAKE, SHAKE YOUR SNEEKY! Then pour over ice cubes or a big watermelon ice cube (See recipe HERE)
