Fresh watermelon is my absolute FAVORITE and I had so much left over from the 4th of July weekend that I wanted to use.  So what do I do with leftover fruit on a gorgeous Thursday??  Make a cocktail of course!

This is such a fresh summer martini and your girlfriends will love this when served at your next gathering.  I mean seriously, at only 90 calories per cocktail, who wouldn’t love this?!  Careful not to drink too many though, they sure do go down fast!  I got this fabulous recipe from Gina’s Skinny Recipes and I just had to try it.  Trust me, it doesn’t disappoint.  Plus!  It’s about time I posted a new cocktail recipe, it’s been forever and THAT is just not acceptable.

Seriously I love Summer.  I really think it’s my absolute favorite time of the year (besides Christmas of course) and no matter what crazy stuff is going on, sunshine and sundresses just always seem to make it all better.  Also, you can’t forget that fruit is much more in season, veggies grow more abundantly and you have more of an incentive to eat healthy since you’ll be rockin’ that swimsuit almost daily!  Hope you guys are having a fabulous summer so far and I really hope you enjoy this yummy cocktail as much as I did!

Cheers!!
