So funny, not so funny story about this cocktail.

I got the idea from a friend. She was on an all girls beach vacation with friends and told me that she made a light refreshing cocktail that was perfect for the beach. I knew I had to recreate it and share it with y’all.

I know that’s not funny. It’s just how this recipe came into being. But here’s the funny part.

So, normally I use H-E-B Curbside when it comes to groceries. H-E-B is our local grocery store and curbside is… well you can guess. You pick up your groceries curbside instead of going into the store.

I love it! I started doing it when I was pregnant, but now even with the kids it’s so much easier. Instead of having to cart two kids around the grocery store. I sit on my couch and add everything from my grocery list to the shopping cart and tell them when I want to pick it up.

I really haven’t had any issues with it. I even order steak, produce and seafood. Everything I’ve received thus far has been spot on.

Except this time.

This time, as I was unloading all the groceries from my car I picked up the watermelon and eeewwwww… it smushed in a little. Almost like a soft avocado. I knew right then and there that watermelon was bad.

I put it in a box and put it back in my car because I was gonna go by the grocery store tomorrow morning after my workout.

Well, the next morning comes around and as I get in the car.

PPPhewww!!! It smelt horrible.

Sure enough. The watermelon had released nasty juices through the box I had placed it in and onto the floor of my trunk.

Ughhh…

So now, a week and a car shampoo later I’m still trying to get that nasty smell out of my car.

So funny story.. but also not so funny for me.

On a side note. Ever wonder how to pick a good watermelon?

Well, I look for a big yellow spot somewhere on the watermelon. That’s an indicator of how long the watermelon has been resting on the ground. The more yellow the spot the riper it will be. Anything else and you’ll be in trouble.
