Today I’m sharing a little drink that is just PERFECT for summer: Trader Joe’s Watermelon Cucumber Cooler!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that every Tuesday I share a Trader Joe’s recipe using Trader Joe’s ingredients.
A few weeks ago they were sampling this when we went into Trader Joe’s. My first thought was…vodka! Don’t judge me! Lol!
But really, it is so refreshing! I thought it would make the perfect mixer for a summer cocktail.
Trader Joe’s watermelon cucumber cooler
Fresh watermelon or cucumber to garnish (optional, but pretty!)
For these two stemless wine glasses I used 2 1/2 cups of ice to every one cup of the juice. To make these two I used roughy 5 cups of ice and 2 cups of juice. I blended them to the desired slushiness in a blender and garnished them with fresh watermelon. I would recommend adding 2-3 shots of vodka if you want to make these alcoholic!
As a cocktail, these would be great with just the vodka and watermelon cucumber cooler over ice as well!
My boys loved these (sans vodka, of course!) and I think they will be a hit on hot summer days by the pool!
Last year’s favorite summer sip:
Not sure if this watermelon cucumber cooler cocktail will be my favorite of the summer..there is still more research to do! Haha! But this drink we named “Summer in a Cup” was definitely last year’s!
If you are looking for a refreshing summer cocktail, give this one a try!
