Watermelon juice on its own is already known to be a great drink in hydrating oneself, which feeling this summer heat seems to be an apt choice of beverage. It is also a great drink for weight loss, an amazing source for vitamin A, C,potassium and is anti-inflammatory. Which is why I decided to spruce this drink up for what I like to call tipsy tuesday's ;)
Easy and quick, this baby is sure to get you into your vacay mood.
