Hot summer days call for good company and a cold drink in hand. When I think of summer days, I immediately think of two things: fresh watermelon and lemonade. It’s a no-brainer to combine the two—and add a little splash of vodka—to make some spiked watermelon lemonade!
Typical spiked lemonade often has 25 to 30 grams each of carbs and sugar—all from processed ingredients. The easiest way to cut carbs and sugar: Don’t use the fake stuff! Why use fake ingredients when real fruit tastes so amazing?
This spiked watermelon lemonade has no added sugar and makes sitting poolside that much sweeter. It’s way too easy. All you have to do is add vodka, water, watermelon, lemon juice and optional stevia to a blender and blend until it becomes completely smooth. You can serve your spiked watermelon lemonade right out of the blender, or you can pour it into a pitcher and refrigerate it while you wait for your friends to join you.
This spiked watermelon lemonade recipe is one of my favorite summer drinks. The clean ingredients make it taste light and refreshing, and it’s full of nutrients like vitamins A and C. Plus, the water and watermelon give you a boost of hydration—you can’t go wrong!
