Refreshing Watermelon Chillers with Jenna's Jellies and Jams: A Perfect 4th of July Drink

As the 4th of July festivities fade into fond memories, it's time to enjoy the summer with refreshing drinks. One standout is the Watermelon Chiller, a delightful blend of fresh watermelon and Jenna's Strawberry Banana Jellies and Jams. This drink is not only delicious but also easy to make, making it perfect for any summer gathering.


  • Fresh watermelon
  • Four heaping tablespoons of Jenna's strawberry banana jellies and jams
  • Ice
  • (Optional) Vodka or tequila for an adult twist


Prepare the Watermelon: Start by cutting your watermelon. A tip from Carol: it's easier to cut watermelon when it's warm because it's less juicy and easier to handle. Slice the watermelon into chunks, ensuring you remove as much of the flesh as possible.

Blend the Ingredients: Place the watermelon chunks into a blender. Add four heaping tablespoons of Jenna's strawberry banana jellies and jams. Blend until smooth. This combination creates a wonderfully sweet and fruity base for your drink.

Add Ice: To get your Watermelon Chiller nice and cold, add a generous amount of ice to the blender. Blend again until the ice is fully incorporated and the drink is chilled to perfection.

Serve and Enjoy: Pour the Watermelon Chiller into glasses filled with ice. For those who enjoy a little kick, add a splash of vodka or tequila. Stir well and taste the refreshing blend with just a hint of that extra zing.

Why This Drink is Perfect for the 4th of July:

  • Refreshing and Hydrating: Watermelon is a summer favorite for its hydrating properties, and this drink is no different. It’s perfect for cooling down on a hot July day.
  • Sweet and Fruity: Jenna's strawberry banana jellies and jams add a unique sweetness that complements the watermelon perfectly.
