Five Great Cocktails for National Watermelon Day
On August 3, we'll celebrate the ubiquitous melon of summer with National Watermelon Day. We've rounded up these five refreshing watermelon cocktails to help you celebrate — even if you didn't know that National Watermelon Day was a thing!
Watermelon + Wine = Yum with this spectacular sangria recipe from Delish. An assortment of fruit gives it great color, and we love the extra kick from the rum. Serve in Drinking Divas wine glasses for extra yum!
Add a little sparkle to your watermelon with this delicious Basil Gimlet Fizz from the doyenne of drinks, Martha Stewart. Frozen chunks of watermelon give it its chill, while seltzer gives it its fizz.
With just four ingredients — watermelon, vodka, triple sec and lime juice — this Epicurious cooler is super easy and super tasty.
This Caipirinha-inspired cocktail from Food & Wine ups the ante with unexpected tequila and St. Germain liqueur, and sweet agave nectar, creating a bold, refreshing mix.
Is it possible to fit all the best tastes of summer in single glass? With this margarita from How Sweet It Is, the answer is a resounding yes! The secret to this magic concoction is the watermelon rosé syrup made from wine, watermelon juice and sugar. This recipe is a bit more labor intensive than the others, but we promise it's worth the work. Cheers!
