Have you found your signature watermelon summer cocktail yet?????

I feel like we all need one.

Especially after working all weekend and still having another five full workdays left to go before the next day off. The twelve day in a row workweek struggle is REAL, y’all.

MAJOR plus when that cocktail involves exactly three minutes of work and can be in a glass with a little umbrella in it faster than you can say SANDY BOTTOMS.

Also it has the cutest cocktail name ever. See above.

So the major steps of this cocktail involve:

pureeing fresh watermelon into juice

lime juicing

opening up a bottle of rum

stirring

And the end result is the most DELICIOUS sweet lightly spiced tart RUM-TASTIC drink.

Bottoms up!
