The good news is that because he's exiled me to the side of the couch, he's not all up in my business, resting his head on my wrists as I fiddle with my laptop. What can he say? He's just a needy, affection-craving pooch who wants to be right next to his family, except when it's hot.
With my dog-less wrists free to type, I am ready to tell you about this refreshing cocktail. And even though alcohol dehydrates you, this one's full of delicious watermelon juice, which is ultra hydrating and amazing for your skin. So I think we can put this in the category of healthy cocktails, right?
2 oz. clear rum
1 oz. cucumber juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice (½ oz.)
4 oz. watermelon juice
To make watermelon juice, just grab some watermelon and whizz it up in a blender until smooth. Strain the pulp if you prefer.
This is a deliciously summery cocktail and it's super dangerous because you can't even tell that there's any alcohol in it. Melon and cucumber go really well together because they belong to the same plant family and the little squeeze of lemon brightens it up.
