Summer Cocktail Hour: Watermelon Refresher

Watermelon Refresher 3 marthafied

What is better than a slice of watermelon on a boiling hot summer day? Watermelon Refresher is! It’s watermelon juice mixed with limes and Indian Tonic Water. You can use any tonic water, but my absolute favorite is Schweppes Slimline Indian Tonic Water. It just tastes enough tonicy with the perfect amount of bubbles.
