It has been hot as you know what here in Southern California this season. I am a huge fan of drinking cool plain water but sometimes you just need a little something something in your water AND NO I do not mean booze. ( at least for this recipe )
The thing I have discovered with water is it is kinda like a big bowl of romaine lettuce. It is a blank canvas and if you allow yourself to think out of the box you can get super creative with it.
We belong to a local CSA, Community Supported Agriculture, and they bring us in season fruit and vegetables to our door each week. A few weeks ago we received this HUGE watermelon and I immediately thought of making a drink with it. YES my initial thought was mixing it with vodka but since it was only Tuesday I opted for making a non-alcoholic cooler. If you are looking for something with a little something something check out this recipe.
