Watermelon Mojito Coolers

Watermelon Slushies-2

Sadly, summer is coming to an end. This weekend (Labor Day) marks the unofficial end of summer as kids are back in school, the weather starts cooling down for most of us on the east coast and apple picking becomes the next outdoor activity to do (I can’t wait for this!).

But before we head out of the season, let’s raise a glass to what was a quick, lovely and busy summer with these watermelon mojito coolers.

Watermelon Slushies-1

Cool, refreshing, easy-to-whip up and delicious. They are just what you want to make to use up the last of the juicy watermelons and a pitcher will be perfect as you get together with family and friends this weekend!!!
