Sweeten Your Day with This Recipe for National Watermelon Day

If there's one fruit of the summer, it is hands down, watermelon! And it just so happens that National Watermelon Day falls on an extremely hot August 3rd. With watermelon in one hand, the only proper thing to do is to have a watermelon cocktail in the other, right? My kind of double fisting! Watermelon and gin is my new favorite combination, and surely one which I know you will love. Here's my recipe for a Silver Watermelon Cooler!
