Infused Kitchen: Watermelon Cucumber Mint Summer Drink


Nothing says summer like a cool, delicious and refreshing drink! My favorite summer drink is a watermelon, cucumber, basil, lemonade recipe, made with simple ingredients and no added sugar.

Now, I have an even better way to enjoy this tasty summertime treat: Midwest Magic Tonics! I’m looking forward to mixing these tonics into my summer drinks and sipping away poolside – so easy to make, and so refreshingly delicious!

This Watermelon Cucumber Mint Summer Drink combines the natural flavors of watermelon, cucumber, and mint, with a unique twist of Midwest Magic. Mixed with the Midwest Magic – Mountain Mojito Live Resin Tonic, this refreshing beverage is not only delicious but also the perfect way to unwind and enjoy the sunny season.
