Make Cocktails With Fresh Watermelon

It may not be summer just yet, but we’re counting down the days until fresh watermelons make their comeback. We crave it like crazy when the temps climb into the eighties and we’re soldiering through the oppressively hot days of summer. What would barbecues and 4th of July shindigs be without this wonderfully quenching melon? While we love eating it the old-fashioned way, our preferred way to enjoy it is also  in a cocktail, of course. And since watermelons are comprised of 91 percent water, we don’t have to worry about sipping on H2O the whole time to stay hydrated. Check out our favorite watermelon cocktails you don’t want to be without this summer.
