Pink and green can be pretty atrocious, huh?
My college roommate Kristen and I decided we’d do the pink and green thing in our freshman dorm, and I’m not going to pretend like we did it well. With the exception of drinking lots of bourbon, we didn’t really do anything well. So this is kind of a wash.
My aversion to this color combo is compounded by the fact that I live in the south where someone somewhere (probably Charleston, ugh) decided that this is an acceptable way for grownass women to dress:
Stop it, Lilly Pulitzer. You just stop.
One pink & green combo I will never argue with, though, is a watermelon.
This morning I had to get some blood work done for a wealth of obscure, intangible problems with the inner workings of my body. I wouldn’t say I’m scared of needles necessarily, but with some guy in the room next to me screaming (I mean screaming) uncontrollably, I was a little unhinged. Add to that the fact that I had to fast for the test and hadn’t had coffee and perhaps you will see what led me running straight into the arms of this watermelon limeade and a little sunshine this afternoon.
This drink is the product of a shameless “I deserve it” moment. I hate and love those.
- 2 cups watermelon, diced
- juice of two limes
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup ice
- Add all ingredients to a blender and process until smooth
I just slammed this drink so hard. It’s lightly sweet and perfectly tart, refreshing and rewarding enough to make up for being stabbed with a needle. I should put some vodka in it next time. See how my blood work comes back after that.
Pink and green I don’t hate…
