Watermelon Mint Refresher

Watermelon Mint Refresherwatermeloncoconutdrink

This was just one of those spur-of-the-moment things.  I went for a walk with my friend Lisa on a very humid Saturday morning.  When I got back, I was craving something even more refreshing than water.  Later I shared this on Facebook, and my friend Megan decided to take it to another level and add some booze.  I haven’t tried it that way…yet.  But I bet it would be good with champagne, vodka, or (my personal favorite) tequila.
