I drink 5 to 6 cans of Diet Coke everyday. I drink it so much my dietary staff gave me for my birthday a 7-Eleven insulated jug filled with 1 liter and I consumed the stuff in one sitting. I know, I know. It’s not healthy, my kidneys despise me. G has been blending pitchers of this watermelon cooler almost daily to encourage me to hydrate properly and I gotta say, it’s working. This fruit cooler is so minty, so refreshing with all the flavors of summer and I can readily enjoy a glass as it keeps well in the refrigerator for at least a few days. And the coolest thing about this cooler, it’s kid-friendly but adding a swig or two of vodka or rum easily pumps it up for adult fun.
