August – sunny, hot and draining, right? (Except to my friend Jodi who thinks the hotter/more humid, the better.) Me? I like cooler temperatures, so August is all about staying cool. I have a good summer drink recipe for you, thanks again to Pinterest!
Sprite or 7-Up
Frozen peach slices
Add peach slices and watermelon cubes to your glass. Pour your white soda over the fruit. Stick a watermelon cube on the side. Enjoy! (How easy is that?)
Did you know that you can cube an entire watermelon in less than 3 minutes? I like the taste of watermelon, but I never want to go through the process of slicing and cubing. It just doesn’t seem worth the effort. Until I saw someone do it this way. Now I will probably always have fresh watermelon cubes in the fridge during the summer! I took pictures, the last time we cut one up.
First you cut the ends off (so it doesn’t roll) and then slice down the sides to remove the rind.
Then you cut through it horizontally (as if you were making big dinner plates) and then you slice right down through the discs to make cubes.
Less than 3 minutes and the whole thing is done.
Can’t beat that!
