Checkout our 2021 National Watermelon Day drink guide for the best drinks around.
We always try to drop off a Drink Guide here and there so you have new things to try when you finally sit back and relax after a tough day at work. For National Watermelon Day, the spirits industry is going all out to celebrate, so why not take a crack at it and find your new favorite cocktail.
Yes, we know it’s early in the week but there’s nothing wrong with a little drink to unwind–and if you don’t have time, you can always celebrate later this weekend.
