Even before this Watermelon Lime Vodka Cocktail, I could NOT get enough watermelon. No really, I think my skin is taking on a reddish hue!
I am almost embarrassed to say that on more than one occasion, just in the past 2 weeks alone, I have eaten 1/4 to 1/2 a watermelon all by myself! I may have eaten a whole one in a 24 hour period, and I am not finished yet! They are just SO good this year! AND good for you! Watermelon has great health benefits.
So of course I would also gravitate towards making a watermelon cocktail or two. After all…I do love my cocktails, lol!
