Made with the juicy, cooling fruit of summer, these drinks are perfect for sipping by the pool or enjoying at a BBQ. But what exactly goes into a watermelon cocktail?
Most recipes start with some form of alcohol – vodka is a popular choice, but rum and tequila are also common. From there, you’ll need to add some sweetness, which can come in the form of simple syrup, fruit juice, or even just sugar.
And of course, you’ll need plenty of watermelon! Many recipes call for adding lime juice for a bit of tartness, but this is entirely up to you.
