Hey friends. I’ve got an awesome treat for you today. Go raid your liquor cabinets, because today we’re making cocktails! Healthy cocktails of course….
To be completely honest with you, I wasn’t planning to write a alcoholic related post today. It came about because I am the WORST melon cutter in-the-world. I cut the melon in half and then quarter each half – that part always goes great. It is whenever I have to slice the melon that we run into problems.
See look at how pretty those melon halves are (so proud).
This is my problem. Chunks of melon all over the place! I think I am just terrified of slicing off some flesh that I always just let the knife do what it wants to do, even if that means loosing some precious melon.
I couldn’t let all the melon go to waste, so I grabbed some rum and got creative. It’s five o’clock somewhere, right?
These cantaloupe slushies are super easy to make! They would be great with honey dew melon or even watermelon (just make sure it is seedless). You can also get creative with the alcohol you add – or make them virgin and don’t add any booze!
I used pineapple coconut water because a) I am obsessed with it and b) I knew it would make a tropical cocktail… and who doesn’t love the taste of the Caribbean!
