Salute to Summer: The Watermelon Paloma

watermelon-paloma1-645
Send off summer with a cocktail that combines two of our favorite things: watermelon and sea salt (oh yeah, and tequila). Don’t be fooled by the unicorn tear-pink hue, this cocktail isn’t for lightweights or sugar saturated drink-lovers. It packs a well disguised, perfectly balanced punch…that can, coincidentally, be served punch-style in the melon from whence it came. And because it contains zero added sugar, it’s a recipe that cocktail aficionados, beach bod conscious imbibers and casual Sunday sippers can enjoy equally.
Cheers to another perfect summer, watermelon in hand. Read on for the recipe…

Ditch your fad diets, calorie-counting apps and cleanses, instead trick your body into loving and craving healthy, whole foods. Sounds like a scam, right? Regardless of what your tastes buds or brain are saying, your body actually prefers and thrives off of the good stuff. You just have to adopt the idea of crowding out, meaning that you focus on adding in good food to your daily diet and eventually it naturally pushes out the junk. (more…)
