I don’t think there is a fruit that “tastes” like summer more than watermelon. Not only is it delicious and great for you, watermelon can be served tons of different ways. Here are some of my favorite ways to add watermelon to the menu when entertaining.1. Here we have fun for adults and kids!
Have you ever tried a watermelon mojito pop? Sounds refreshing and cool. Perfect to serve in August (one of the hottest months of the summer) Click here for the recipe from Endliss Simmer. I’m sure kids of all ages will love these watermelon sugar cookies. Decorating these sweets will be just as fun as serving them, I’m sure! The recipe on Munchkin Munchies.
2. Serve up the cocktails!
Yes! That is a REAL WATERMELON!!! This has to be the coolest thing I’ve seen all summer!! The folks at Keg Works are natural genuises !!! They carry a keg spout (for UNDER $30) that can be inserted into any fruit. The steps to use it are simple:
1. Cut open the watermelon
2. Scoop out the fruit inside
3. Pour in your favorite summer cocktail
4. Instert keg spout
Sangria is one of my favorite summer drinks! The mix of fresh fruit juices and different tequilas, wine, vodkas and even some liqueurs make this type of cocktail great to serve to large parties. Here is a recipe for watermelon sangria!
