We’ve made no secret of it: We love watermelon. We’re obsessed with finding fresh ideas for how to eat it, like these 11 awesome ways to serve a watermelon. We’re even willing to drink from a DIY watermelon keg (and, seriously, when was the last time you drank from a keg?). While watermelon is at its best, we’ve decided to find a watermelon cocktail and mocktail that we can drink through the rest of the summer.
We’re not wasting a single chance to get the best of our favorite summer fruit. Cheers.
Cocktail: Watermelon Mojito
This cocktail recipe combines two of our favorite summer things: watermelon and mojitos. Mint, lime, and rum are perfect with watermelon. In fact, this gorgeous Watermelon Mojito at The Vintage Mixer may be my drink of the summer. And, no, it’s not too late in the season to say so.
Mocktail: Watermelon Agua Fresca
Watermelon is so delicious that it doesn’t need much to be great. Case in point: This Watermelon Agua Fresca at Handmade Mood. A classic Mexican drink, this is nothing more than watermelon, water, honey, and a splash of fresh lime. And it’s summertime perfection.
