Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits during the summertime. It makes me think of bbqs and pool parties! Watermelon is so refreshing to eat on it’s own, or in a salad with feta cheese and mint {yum!}. I also love it in drink form so I decided to use it in a cocktail with one of my favorite liquors, St. Germain Elderflower. Every drink I’ve had with St. Germain is amazing so I decided to finally buy it. This watermelon cocktail with mint and lime juice is so delicious that I also made a non-alcoholic version since they can be a little too easy to knock back! You’ll thank me for both!
