Spring has sprung here in Pennsylvania which means lots of rain and flip flopping temperatures. It is tending toward up though, which means that those late night deck parties are just around the corner! Deck drinks are the perfect excuse to try something new, flavorful and light and what better base for a warm weather cocktail than watermelon! Watermelon is one of my (and my kids!) most favorite warm weather fruits, which means we always have some on hand around this time of year. That yummy bright pink fruit is the perfect base for a cocktail to share with friends while watching the kids play. For some inspiration, I have gathered 15 watermelon cocktails for summertime that all look incredibly delicious and so pretty too!
Are you ready for deck drinks with your friends? If you are, pick a watermelon at the store and let’s get to making some of these stunning drinks!

Don’t they all look so yummy?? I personally love mojitos the best, so those and the margaritas will be the first I try! The great things about these drinks is you can make a big batch and bring them to whoever’s house you are hanging out at! if your kids love watermelon as much as mine do, be sure to make a non-alcoholic batch just for them!
