Watermelon Cucumber Cooler
Watermelon is the epitome of summer!! There is nothing like that juice taste of watermelon on a hot summer day. I was thinking of a nice refreshing summer sipper, something that you could enjoy in the shade as you sat and watched the grass grow. After a little while, I came up with this Watermelon Cucumber Cooler! I also love the freshness of cucumber and combined these two flavors to come up with this drink. You will love this on a hot summer day!!!
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 of sugar
1 cup of 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.
