Watermelon Cooler

Ahh, summertime. This damn drink tastes just like it. 

We took one sip of the exceptionally smooth and subtle Prairie Organic Spirits' Cucumber Vodka and immediately thought of pairing it with fresh watermelon. The two flavors are natural bedfellows and while we're not saying drinking this will get you laid, it sure won't hurt.

To make watermelon juice, you can obviously run it through a juicer but you can also just puree it in a blender and strain through a mesh colander. It's called watermelon after all, so trust us when we tell you there's a lot of juice ready to harvest and it's  easy to do.
