Mix-up something scrumptious with these special recipes provided to you by The Link, the premier apartments in West Houston, and put our updated, fully equipped kitchens to good use!  

Speaking of mixing up something scrumptious, there is absolutely nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold drink. Instead of reaching for a soda when you’re thirsty, though, try one of these healthy, cool drinks in its place! Check out these two deliciously refreshing recipes below, courtesy of the best apartments near Energy Corridor, for a Honeydew Lime Cooler and Cherry Smash.

Honeydew Lime Cooler

  • 1 small honeydew melon, seeded and cut into one-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup seedless red grapes
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 cups seltzer water

Place the cubed melon and grapes into the freezer for about an hour. In a blender, combine the frozen melon and grapes with the lime juice and honey. Process until smooth. Fill glasses until half full and then top off with the seltzer water. Stir and serve immediately.

Cherry Smash

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries, pits removed
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 cups seltzer water

Divide the cherries, mint leaves, and sugar into four glasses. Mash these ingredients together with a wooden spoon or muddler. Stir in the lime juice and fill each glass with ice. Top off with the seltzer and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately.
