The Fourth July will be here in no time at all! I know because the neighborhood has been crazy with fireworks. When it hasn’t been raining anyway! It’s been like should someone be building an ark? At least I’ve had a reprieve from yard work. I’m doing little things here and there, like deadheading flowers, pulling a few weeds but am waiting on some help with some more major projects. I do know that I want to make this Watermelon Aguas Fresca for the Fourth.
Well, I’m finally home in Minnesota, back from Georgia and my daughter’s wedding. I’ll post more on that later, when the photos are in~but I was looking forward, after weeks of 90 plus degree weather down south, to more reasonable temps. Guess what? It was 88 degrees back home. And while I might be jumping the gun just a little, I’m loving these Watermelon Cooler Cocktails. They’re a little sweet, a little tart and they taste fabulous! Perfect for a hot summer evening.
I don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that watermelon is available pretty much all the time, these days. See, I kind of miss the the anticipation and the risk, waiting until mid to late summer & hoping for watermelon by the Fourth of July! On the other hand, those smaller watermelons I’ve seen at the store are always good, a manageable size and I can have watermelon anytime! They were perfect thing to use for this Watermelon, Pineapple Salsa.
I first became aware of Watermelon Yogurt Salad from the commercials of one of those Greek Yogurts. The idea didn’t really appeal to me much. That was until at my folk’s house, my StepSister stepped in and mixed a quick one up from a bit of watermelon we had languishing in the fridge.
