Frozen Swamp Water

No, not actual swamp water.swamp

That would be disgusting.

That’s just what I like to call this slushy watermelon and mango margarita flecked with green stuff.  See? It’s mint, not algae. 


This is a drink for the dog days of summer.  The days when it feels like a swamp every time you step outside.  When ice cold watermelon and mango would hit the spot.  

Here’s what to do:  add watermelon, mango, mint, and ice to a blender.  Go ahead and pour some in a sippy cup if you’ve got kids lurking around.  Then spike the rest with tequila and triple sec.  Don’t forget to salt the rim of your mason jar, because that makes it extra swampy.

    Oooh this sounds delish! I think I will save this one to use for my adult slumber party with my friends.

      It would be good to pack for one of your kayak trips! Just save the booze for when you make it back to shore…
