Fresh fruit cocktails are some of the most refreshing drinks you could enjoy on a hot summer day. Take advantage of those perfectly ripe watermelons, and impress your guests with a few watermelon mimosas.

Watermelon in the summer is a favorite in our house. It’s a great snack, awesome for parties, and if you’re lucky you’ll get one that’s so perfectly sweet. Try prepackaged watermelon if it isn’t yet in season where you’re located.
