Summer break might be winding down, but the summer heat is still going strong. Trying to cool off seems like a never ending effort, but we have a little something in mind to bring on a much needed chill. We’ve whipped up a quick and easy way to keep our temps down. (And its even better than those day dreams we keep having that involve flying to the South Pole with a Pumpkin Spice Latte in hand and Christmas music playing on repeat.) Whether you are parched poolside, or baking at the BBQ, this Watermelon Coconut Cocktail is the perfect way to get refreshed – in more ways than one!
