Watermelon Cooler

Making your own delicious drink to serve to a party is easy, and it does not need to be something unhealthy and sugar filled like many of the recipes that use soda.  In the drink recipe I am sharing with you today, I use fresh watermelon for most of the liquid which creates a sweet drink. I add mint for freshness, a little lime juice to make it tart and sparking water.  Just a dash of stevia if you want it sweeter and you have something that is wonderful to serve at a graduation party or summer get together. If you are having a party for adults, this is wonderful with a little tequila or gin.
