Honeysuckle Watermelon Cocktail
If you were to ask me to describe summer in a glass I would give you a sip of this cocktail. It screams summer. This cocktail reminds me of the spiked watermelon that we used to enjoy during our college days except now I can enjoy it in a glass. Because of course we’re way more refined. That’s it. We’ve also upped the ooh and ah factor by adding our HOMEMADE HONEYSUCKLE SIMPLE SYRUP. You’re going to want to keep this handy all summer long. You’ll find yourself using this simple syrup in all types of summer sippers (that can be spiked or not.) Sweet tea flavored with Honeysuckle anyone?
This is also a great way to use up any extra watermelon OR perhaps that watermelon you picked up that isn’t the sweetest melon you’ve ever scored. Turn it into juice and then make your cocktail (or mocktail, you can easily make this kid friendly by omitting the vodka). Options you know we love them.
Cheers to summer. You know the rules. Be responsible (and invite me over).
