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!
