    The Summer Slush or the Summer of the Spritz both look refreshing and delicious. I don’t drink much but these do sound like they would be worth trying out.

    Watermelon is so delicious in cocktails. Probably my favorite drink ever was a watermelon mojito that I had while in Florida. Can’t wait to try your cocktail version!

  • Oh my goodness, that looks and sounds delish. I just bought a couple of watermelons so I need make some of these this weekend.

    Wow! So there’s a “day” for almost anything and everything. Watermelon Day is a nice event though because it could help raise awareness on the benefits of the fruit. I myself would love to try those drinks as I love watermelon so much. Gee Villaruz
