As this cooler weather is rolling in, East Tennessee is preparing for fall's splendid array of colors the Smoky Mountains is well known for. We are saying farewell in our final weeks of summer, but I can't let go just yet. First I must share with you a delightfully yummy recipe borrowed from Woodchuck's recipe blog. Knowing this drink would be blog worthy I had to of course take some of my own photos in the making. Enjoy soaking up the final days of summer folks!
- ½ of a Watermelon – scooped out
- 1 ½ cups of cut up Pineapple
- 1 cup of raspberries
- 1 pint of Woodchuck® Seasonal Summer Time
- Woodchuck Summer Time delivers a crisp apple cider topped off with a touch of blueberry juice. A cider crafted to be as refreshing as a summer day is long. Find Woodchuck Seasonal Summer Time near you!
(We suggest preparing these the night before!)
Blend the watermelon, pineapple, and raspberries together. Once smooth, pour into your preferred ice cube trays, and stick in the freezer. After about four hours, or once firm, take the ice cubes out, and when ready to serve, stick four in a pint. Take a bottle of Woodchuck® Seasonal Summer Time and pour over the cocktail cubes. Give a quick stir, and enjoy as the cubes melt into the perfect holiday cocktail!
BONUS RECIPE: Woodchuck Watermelon Gumption Italian Ice!
If you don’t use all of the fruit blend, pour the remaining liquid in the emptied watermelon, then top it off with a bottle of Woodchuck® Gumption™! Stick in the freezer, and take out when at your preferred consistency. Either scoop into cups, or just grab a big spoon, and enjoy!
