Superfruit Sips: Watermelon Boost Cocktail

It's the summer of Solara y'all!! The season change is almost here and isn't it exactly what the doctor ordered? Fresh air, sunshine and summer Friday's mean one thing...cocktail time! You know we're big fans of plant power and of course that goes for our fresh summer cocktails as well.

Inspired by the super fruit ingredient cocktail in our Juice Boost Defense Boosting Serum, we met up with our favorite mixologist, Suzy from The Spirited Shaker (IG: @spiritedshaker), to create a signature Solara sip for easing into the summer mood.

A new twist on the watermelon martini, this simple mix of watermelon, cucumber, aloe and mint will leave you dreaming of sunshine and sand, and leave your friends feeling like you've mastered yet another quarantine skill. Simply put: it's fresh AF.

This recipe makes one serving, so simply multiply by the number of guests and serve in a pitcher for your larger summer soirees.
