Summer Mocktail: Watermelon Cooler

Get your non-alcoholic drink on with this 4th of July mocktail.

Being pregnant during margarita and rose season (or summer as some call it) can make social occasions a little tricky. It feels un-special to be sipping on water night after night. While water (and tons of it) is key for your growing baby, sometimes you need a little something more. This Spicy Watermelon Cooler is super hydrating thanks to the cucumber and watermelon and also has a little kick. Sort of like a mama-friendly spicy margarita!

Ingredients:
½ cucumber peeled and sliced
3 cups of watermelon chunks
juice of 1 lime
3 slices of jalapeno seeds removed
a few springs of mint for garnish

Directions:
In a blender combine the cucumber, watermelon, lime juice and jalapeno. Blend until completely smooth. Pour over ice and garnish with a few springs of fresh mint.
