Rum Rita

Do you like cherries?  If so, you’ll love this rum rita.  It’s cherry season now and I’m putting them in everything, including my cocktails.  

This drink is really easy to assemble.  You’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 Oranges
  • 10 Cherries
  • 2 Cups of Ice
  • 3 Oz Spiced Rum
  • 3 Oz Tequila
  • 3 Oz Orange Liquor (I like Grand Marnier)

Add the liquor, fruit, and ice to your blender in that order and blend.  Find your favorite glass and drink up!  It should serve three to four.

Skinny Watermelon Limeade

If you love watermelon then try this skinny watermelon limeade.  I’m not sure where you’re visiting from, but here in Florida it’s HOT!! ☀️☀️☀️I absolutely love the flavors in this drink and it’s great for the long hot summer days.  

This drink is super easy and can be made via juicer or blender.  When you try this, make a huge batch because it will disappear quickly.  I’m not joking.  

Watermelon as the name would suggest is 92% water, which makes it great for juicing.  The above and bottom picture show the drink from a juicer.  The benefit to juicing is a smoother consistency since the pulp is removed.  When you drink juice without pulp, the vitamins and nutrients enter your system faster because the fiber is lost.

The bottom pictures, show the drink blended.  I like to leave the skins on the limes for the zest flavor.  My vitamix is powerful, so it pulverizes the skins of the lime.  It’s a bit grainy, but I don’t mind.  

I suggest peeling the limes before you add them into your blender.  If you blend the watermelon, you’ll keep the fiber.  This will obviously make your drink thicker, so you’ll have a smoothie consistency.  Make it a slushy by adding ice. 

If you go the slushy route, blend the watermelon and lime first until you get a smooth liquid consistency.  Then add ice and continue to blend to make it a slushy.

  • One cup of watermelon contains more lycopene than a medium size tomato.  Lycopene has been linked to heart and bone health.

With the benefits to watermelon there’s no reason not to drink up!  Try it and let me know what you think.
