This heat wave is killing me y'all especially being 7 months pregnant. I need something to cool myself down with and this happens to be the perfect drink, because it also calms me down too (this pregnancy has given me anxiety). This would be perfect for bbq party! you can add some sparkling water to make it fizzy. You can probably add a shot of titos in it to really start the party going!
You get this beautiful light lavender color from the seeds, but you can also add food coloring to it (I added the TINIEST drops). It is simple, refreshing, and calming! Hope you all enjoy this!
Stay happy, stay hungry (and in this case thirsty 😂😜, idk why I'm like this honestly LOL)
