DRANK. OF. SUMMER.

Can I just call it now?

Boozy Rosemary Watermelon Lemonade

I’m just anticipating how grateful I’m going to be for something cold and refreshing and tequila-filled on my one day off a week once intern year starts….and how glad I’m going to be that I put in the time and energy and research to find the MOST PERFECT ONE now.

You feel me?

I’m not saying I’m going to need NEED a drink every week….but I’m also not saying it won’t enhance my quality of life.

Like, a gazillion-fold.

Especially this drink!!! It’s just SUMMER. In a pitcher.

So good.

Here’s how it goes:

Make rosemary simple syrup.

Puree watermelon with lemon juice in a blender.

Add rosemary simple syrup.

Add tequila.

INHALE.

You could also omit the tequila (<– THE HORROR) and then it becomes a kid-friendly mocktail situation!

So multipurpose. So easy. So what your summer needs.
