Watermelon Cooler

Despite my obsession with the S’more Shake, I’ve about hit my peak on dairy intake for the month. So while the east coast continues to sizzle, I’ve turned to a quick-fix cooler made with watermelon and frozen grapes and sweetened with a squeeze of agave. It’s the consistency of a slushie without the sugar high.

I pour the cooler into chilled mason jars for a fun summertime twist then tie different color ribbons around the tops of the jars so everyone can keep track of their beverage. Keep the drinks kid-friendly or kick them up a notch and turn them into cooler cocktails by adding a splash of your favorite liquor!

    what a perfect summer recipe, especially for St. Louis where we can’t get out of the upper 90s! I love watermelon and never would’ve thought to pair it with the grapes. Yum!
