Stay Hydrated With These Thirst Quenching Watermelon Cocktails
Summer is not over yet. There is still time to enjoy refreshing cocktails during the days that are longer and sunnier. Watermelon is a classic summertime fruit, and one of the season’s most delicious drink ingredients. Since alcohol tends to dehydrate us during the warmer months, we opt to thirst quenching watermelon cocktails due to the fruit’s high water content. They contain a bounty of nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, and are just simply delicious. Here are some of our favorite watermelon cocktail recipes that will help you stay a little hydrated while we get our buzz on these dog days of summer.
