This Boozy Watermelon Drink is a Must-Try | Recipe

Although the weather is a bit cooler here in Cincinnati today, it’s predicted to soon warm up and this drink recipe is perfect for celebrating the last unofficial holiday of summer. 

Because I have a LOT of fruit cut up and stored in my freezer after making a video about the cost comparison of purchasing precut produce vs. whole produce, the idea for this drink concoction was simply inspired by ingredients I already had on hand. 

What I really like is that this drink isn’t super sweet, yet it has just the right amount of flavor. If I could’ve changed one thing though, it’d be to decrease the amount of alcohol used. Don’t worry though, I adjusted the recipe already so you won’t be falling over after consuming one of these.

The rims of each mason jar were dipped in honey before coating them with a blend of sugar and coconut flakes. Although I wasn’t sure how the combination would taste, I was pleasantly surprised. If you prefer sweeter drinks, sipping the drink from the sugar-coated rim will definitely provide you with that extra little kick of sweetness. 

Alright, do I have you convinced to give this boozy watermelon drink recipe a try?

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Frozen chunks of watermelon (about 1/4 of a regular-sized watermelon cut up.
  • Coconut milk
  • Honey
  • Brown sugar & White Sugar (you could use one or the other, but I used both because I had just a tiny bit of white sugar in a jar I wanted to use up)
  • Coconut Flakes
  • Rum
  • Jack Daniels 
  • Small slices of watermelon (to dress up the rim of the drink glasses)

Directions

Fill your blender up with the frozen watermelon chunks along with 3/4 cup of coconut milk and blend well.

You’ll then want to add in 1/4 of rum and 1/4 cup of Jack Daniels and continue to blend all of the ingredients together. If the mixture isn’t blending together well, add more coconut milk in 1/4 increments until you get just the right consistency.

Dip the rim of your glasses or mason jars into the honey, making sure honey cover the entire rim, then dip it into the honey. I then sprinkled the rims with a pinch of coconut flakes.
