Watermelon Cucumber Cooler

Watermelon is the epitome of summer!! I was thinking of a nice refreshing summer sipper.  I also love the freshness of cucumber and combined these two flavours to come up with this drink. You will love this on a hot summer day!!!

Serves 4

4 cups watermelon, cubed
4 oz. Bacardi white rum
3 oz. simple syrup infused with cucumber
Soda Water or sparkling water
Watermelon and cucumber to garnish

Cucumber simple syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 small cucumbers, grated

Place sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium low heat and stir to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Add the cucumber and pour the syrup into a sealed container and place it into the refrigerator to cool. Add the watermelon, rum, 3 oz. simple syrup into a blender and blend. Pour into  4 glasses with ice, top with soda water. Use extra watermelon and cucumber to garnish.

    What a beautiful drink this makes. It sounds like it would taste good. Melons and cucumbers are from the same family if I remember right, so they should blend well. I wonder what a cantalope and cucumber drink would taste like.

    This looks good. I think for my family, I would substitute the rum with some cub soda. I can see it at a family picnic served out of a airpot at the park.

    By the way, I think you have a beautiful header, with the fruits and vegetables. They are so colorful.
