I love cocktails.

Did you know that about me?

Ha. Of course you did.

I’m always dreaming up new summer cocktails and I think I just stumbled across a new favorite. Fresh watermelon, blueberries, mint, vodka, Truvia and a touch of fizzy water. How in the world could you not LOVE all that deliciousness? The best part is that this recipe makes a BIG pitcher so that means you can bring it out to the patio and enjoy a few cocktails with the hubs.

Or that means you just have more for yourself to drink alone on the patio.

Whatevs.

Oh wanna hear something totally off topic? I adopted a new cat. Yes, that means that I’m officially a crazy ass cat lady. This makes number 3 for our house. My husband says I’m not allowed to get anymore cats after this. Well, actually he “if you get one more cat I’m leaving you.”

Same thing…right?

You know how people gush over their new human babies? Well this is about to happen with my cat. Want to hear all about her? Of course you do.

Little Bennie “Benz” is 4lbs of adorableness and 1 year old. She is not growing anymore and is basically a forever kitten. Who has not always wanted one of those? I adapted him from North Carolina where my friend Jenni was fostering her. Jennie and I are friends on Facebook and I feel in love with little Benz via social media. So last week like a crazy person I drove down south and got myself a new kitty.

She is super sassy and takes no crap from my 2 other 12 pound kitties. Basically she is awesome.

Bennie the wee one

Ok, back to the cocktail. Here is what you should do.

Make it for Memorial Day.

Drink it on Memorial Day.

Love Memorial Day.

    I can’t wait for the day I can have one of these but I’m thinking they would be delicious even without the vodka! They look so refreshing! p.s. dying from the cuteness of your kitty!!!
