I cannot get enough watermelon this season. Every time I go to the grocery store, I set it out on the countertop and it’s gone in an hour. Luckily, there are much worse things I could be binging on…so I’m giving myself a break here.
Since I’m all about a cocktail, I decided to add one of my favorite summer fruits into the mix. The best part? The watermelon is sweet enough so you don’t have to add anything extra that would bump up the calorie count.
Scroll down for the recipe and serve up a pitcher this weekend at your pre-4th of July celebrations. Trust me, it’s delicious!
