Thirsty Thursdays: Strawberry Watermelon Cooler

After last week's first "Thirsty Thursdays" post with an amazing Grapefruit Margarita recipe, we thought that Thursdays might just have to be permanently dedicated to a regular thirst quenching recipe!

This week we have chosen another fruity summer cocktail: The Strawberry Watermelon Cooler, courtesy of At The Table!

Here is the Pin we found:

If a picture that looks this good doesn't make you ready for Thirsty Thursdays,
we may have to declare you are party pooper.

So, here is the refreshingly summer recipe:

Strawberry Watermelon Cooler (serves 4)
4 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Strawberry Liquor (any berry or pomegranate works)
juice of 1 lime plus slices for garnish
1 pound watermelon chunks
2 cups ice plus more for glasses
strawberries for garnish

Blend ingredients until frothy. Pour over ice, garnish & sip until cool.

We thought a fun take on this cocktail would be to serve them in a Mason Jar with a colorful striped straw, like the ones below, which are sold on Anthropologie's wedding site, BHLDN. They come in seven (yes, SEVEN) super festive colors, so if you don't love yellow, you can have your pick.

Thanks At The Table, and Pinterest for the inspiration!
Hope this cools off everyone's Thursday a bit in preparation for the weekend!
