I’m experiencing a severe case of wanderlust this week. I’ve been dreaming of escaping to a remote beach (I’ve never even seen clear water, can you believe it?) or finally visiting the UK, or maybe even heading back up to Camden, ME because it was the most perfect little town I ever did see. But, for today, I’ll settle for this Watermelon Sandia Smash. Settle might be the wrong word. Enjoy, enjoy this Watermelon Sandia Smash. That’s what I meant. 😉
I think I’m starting to get antsy because it’s been much too long since I’ve been to Brasil and I’m missing that carefree lifestyle. Not that everything is carefree there (especially not right now), but more so that I’m entirely relaxed the whole time I’m there.
And that’s what this colorful Watermelon Sandia Smash reminds me of. I suppose not necessarily the watermelon, but how refreshing and easy it is to make. My absolute favorite will always be the caipirinha, so perhaps I’ll have to whip up one of those for you real soon!
Do you have any favorite tropical cocktails? Or perhaps cocktails that transport you somewhere else? I’m totally envisioning myself at the pool club in Brasil lying in the sun reading my way through my favorite beach reads. Now doesn’t that sound divine? It sure does to me!
I think that’s what summer’s for, right? Escaping the ordinary as often as possible. Even switching up your daily environment can make a world of difference. Example A: Hot, sunny beach days! They’re my favorite kind of summer days – the ones where you can leave your phone (except for those snaps, right?) and instead grab your favorite beach read, your sunscreen (a necessity, y’all, don’t mess around), some tasty drinks (maybe like this watermelon favorite?), and snacks. My absolute favorite is when we can pack up the car, head out early, and grab some deli sandwiches on the way.
Alright, now that I’m 100% ready to escape my weekly routine and head to the beach, let me cut to the chase. I spotted this recipe on Food & Wine and decided to try it out for myself. I swapped out the tequila for mezcal for a smokier flavor, but include whichever one you prefer! Either way, enjoy and bottoms up!
