Watermelon Cocktails

Summer means two things, watermelon and bonfires. And what makes a bonfire better? A cocktail or two of course. Make it even better by combining the two for Watermelon Cocktails.

Drink responsibly! Let someone else play with fire if you’re drinking!

I buy at least one watermelon each week during the summer, from about mid-June through early September or whenever they start to cost $95 each. Most of those melons get immediately chopped up, the rinds go to the chickens and the watermelon becomes the main food source for my children and I.

But occasionally, when the time is right, that perfectly ripened and juicy red watermelon finds it’s way into a cocktail. I’m a gin girl at heart and I’m a big fan of mixing watermelon, gin and mint in a Watermelon Gin Smash but there are oh, so many other options out there and I’m going to share some of them with you today.
