Watermelon Lime Sprizter

It has been a long time since I posted a recipe on the blog. Frankly, I haven’t been cooking as much as I would like lately. With all the triathlon training I have been up to, preparing meals has been the last thing on my mind. Trader Joe’s is a life saver with their pre-made salads and grilled chicken.
