Our Memorial Weekend was full of great friends, delicious food, sun, swimming and creative cocktails. One of my best friends, Pala Nicole, and I whipped up an insanely delicious and skinny cocktail on Saturday that even had the boys putting down their beers and snatching our glasses for more sips. Of course this was after Jon stated he did not like “fruity drinks” and did not want one of his own.
Pala Nicole also helped me come up with the very popular and tasty Basil Lime Vodka Freeze, so we are on a roll with delicious and low-calorie drinks. We are going to make this our new tradition whenever we hang out…coming up with new and skinny (and strong!) cocktails.
We made these when it was already dark out so the pictures aren’t as pretty as they would have been in natural sunlight. Oh well.
This cocktail is a simple and quick combination of watermelon vodka, fresh watermelon and ice. That’s IT! It’s not too sweet and it tastes like real, fresh watermelon. Not artificial tasting at all. It’s really refreshing and the only calories are technically from the watermelon vodka since watermelon is mainly water and extremely low in calories.
Pala Nicole, her fiance Adam, Jon and I spent about 30 minutes trying to come up with a name that would do this delicious cocktail justice. Call it whatever you want…just make it! It’s THAT good. You’re welcome!
