Watermelon-Cucumber Cooler (aka Hangover Helper)

Watermelon Juice

I haven’t been on a bender since well before I had kids. But sometimes I’ll get “over served” at an event, or a new cocktail might leave me a bit more bleary-eyed than I’d like. That’s when I turn to this refreshing concoction. The melon and cucumber help to hydrate you, while the salt and mint aid in settling your stomach.

The melon and cucumber help to hydrate you, while the salt and mint aid in settling your stomach.
