Celebrate the 4th with My Skinny Strawberry Watermelon Frozen Cocktail!

Can you believe that it is already July 4th?  Whaaat, it is unbelievable that summer is flying by this fast!  The fourth always marks the middle of summer and now the rest of the summer is only a blink of an eye, whew!  So today I would like to share with you a super simple cocktail drink that will save you from packing on the unwanted pounds during this holiday weekend. 

I used only three ingredients to make this tasty drink and here they are: lemonade, frozen strawberries and watermelon flavored rum.   Yes, I am sorry to say the rum is left my honeymoon, almost 8 years ago!  We went to the Bahamas and boy oh boy, was the rum super cheap but we probably made up for it by paying extra for our heavy luggage, ha! Oh well .  . . I have been making more alcoholic frozen drinks this summer because I now have a high-powered blender, hmm  . . .  green smoothies or  margaritas? Heehee, I do both but once a week I love playing bartender with my blender and mixing up something fun!  Honestly, I am a true beer girl but making drinks is sure fun!
