Watermelon Moscow Mule

Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer has shared another wonderful recipe with us via 52 Thursdays. This one you definitely won’t be able to resist trying.  I’m in love with the idea of using fresh blended watermelon and serving it up in the skin. Brilliant! I’m now sitting here wondering if 10am is too early to try this out? It’s really just a smoothie right? I think I can justify this in the morning because it’s totally healthy (wink wink).
