Celebrating National Watermelon Day with Cascade Ice Water
Last month we introduced our readers to the deliciously refreshing Cascade Ice Sparkling Water and we just had to share some amazing recipes from The Flavorful Life with you! (There are over 100 different recipes on the Cascade Ice blog – be sure to check them out.)
Cascade Ice Melon Mixer
Nothing says refreshing more than this Melon Mixer! Fill a glass halfway with ice cubes (try the Fruity Ice Cubes below!) and then add a small handful of blueberries and a few squares of watermelon. Top it off with delicious Cascade Ice Blueberry Watermelon. Let stand for a minute or two to allow the fruit to enhance the delicious taste of Cascade Ice, and you’ll have a flavorful drink that all of your friends will be raving about!
Fruity Ice Cubes
We think that these fruity ice cubes are the perfect addition to any summertime drink cocktail or beverage you can dream up! Mix and match your favorite fruits to try different flavors and see what you come up with! We’ve got this one to get you started.
Simply combine juiced watermelon, muddled raspberries, a touch of mint and Cascade Ice Blueberry Watermelon to your ice cube trays and sit back and wait for the fun to begin! You can find more combination suggestions on the Cascade Ice blog here and here.
A delicious drink that even the little ones can enjoy is the Cascade Ice Watermelon Cooler! This one is a real crowd pleaser and is super easy to serve up in a pitcher!
Begin with 8 ounces of Cascade Ice Blueberry Watermelon, add a splash of Sprite and some pre-cut fresh watermelon. Stir gently and enjoy!
