Speaking of summer, it’s nearly the Fourth of July! Are you guys as excited as I am? Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays! Although we aren’t traveling this year like we usually do, we are planning on having an epic staycation with lots of good food, good friends, and all the dogs of course.
FOURTH OF JULY IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER
Do you guys have any fun plans for the Fourth of July? There are two mini road trips we are going to take. We are planning on heading out to Amish country to purchase some delicious, homemade baked goods, and we are going fishing!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you know my favorite show right now is Alone. Have you seen it? It’s about wilderness experts who go to desolate places in the world alone and see how long they can last in nature. This show has motivated me to get my nature game on and I’m very much looking forward to fishing, breathing in some fresh mountain air, and getting away from all obligations and my phone.
I will be bringing along some of my delicious watermelon cilantro mint frosé for us all to enjoy because this is the best summer cocktail!
SIMPLE INGREDIENTS, MINIMAL EFFORT
This recipe is easy-breezy. All you need to some Rosé wine or a good quality white wine. For this specific recipe, I’m using Sauvignon Blanc. It gives a nice citrus flavor to the watermelon frosé. You’ll also need a fresh mint, cilantro, lime juice, honey, and watermelon of course!
I made a delicious healthy simple syrup and I might be biased, but I think it brings this watermelon cilantro mint frosé to the next level.
MAKE YOUR OWN HEALTHY SIMPLE SYRUP
Making simple syrup at home is easy. Instead of white sugar, I use honey and water. Add some water and honey to a pot, then add the cilantro and mint leaves. Bring to a boil and simmer on low heat for 15-minutes. If you want the cilantro mint simple syrup to be extra flavorful, you can store it in the fridge overnight in a glass container.
I use this cilantro mint simple syrup for all kinds of things, including tea! There are so many amazing things you can do with food at home.
FROZEN WATERMELON IS A EASY AND AFFORDABLE TREAT
Pro tip: Frozen watermelon is a simple and low-calorie dessert. I’ve actually been eating every night for dessert and it’s perfect for those hot summer nights.
So grab some watermelon, a blender, turn on some fun music, and let’s get cooking!
