A Memorial Day Thirst Quencher – Watermelon Pineapple Splash

Memorial Day is around the corner and, with the warm days ahead of us, this refreshing cool drink is the perfect remedy. You can make this drink in 2 versions, one for the adults with alcohol and one for the kids without. We first tried this while having lunch at the Green Turtle Inn in Islamorada ,Florida Keys and every time we make it for guests it’s a big hit!
