Watermelon-Cucumber Cooler Cocktail

Summer is in full swing. So, make this Watermelon-Cucumber Cooler Cocktail and keep those refreshing drinks pouring. On our recent trip to California, I learned this recipe for an amazingly easy cocktail drink from our Lyft (car service) driver. His enthusiasm and exuberance was inspiring. I found it so easy to put this drink together once we returned to the east coast. This cocktail drink was inspired by a recipe from MyRecipes.com. Serves 2.
