I searched for Mardi Gras drinks and found a list (thanks delish.com) with Cherry Sazeracs, Hurricanes, Mint Juleps, and more. But I didn’t expect to see Watermelon Daiquiris on the list. That’s when I remembered I had a not so sweet (out of season) baby watermelon in the fridge and a lightbulb went off. I cubed the watermelon and put it in the freezer over night. The next day, I filled a blender with frozen watermelon cubes, 4 oz. of rum, 2 oz. of orange juice, 2 tablespoons of simple syrup, and 1/4 cup of fresh lime juice. Blend. Drink. Yum. This would be a great slushy drink for a summer party too. Totally refreshing!
