Tick tock, tick tock, summer is counting down but I'm not ready to let it pass. So I'm making sure to enjoy every warm, sunny moment and eat all the summer watermelon I can before it's all gone. And if there's anything better than eating watermelon, it's drinking it. This fruit was tailor made for summer cocktails.
Because watermelon has such a high water content, it needed the banana to help thicken the fruit base. And the banana also ended up adding another layer of wonderful tropical flavor.
Pina coladas go down dangerously easy and this watermelon lava flow is just as addictive. I'll be drinking these until the last bits of summer are gone. Cheers!
