Fresh Watermelon Mimosa...

Yay...its the official start of summer and you know what that means BBQ's, get togethers, or just relaxing in the backyard. I hope you enjoyed your long weekend, ours was spent laying sod for our backyard that we are fixing up, appropriately called the #384yardcrash. Its so exciting to finally have grass, we are caring for it like a newborn! It was lots of hard work, but totally worth it. 

I have a quick fabulous drink recipe that can be made with or without the booze. Its great to serve at all your summer festivities or to use up extra watermelon you may have on hand. 

What are your go to summer drink recipes?

I'm linking up at The Time To Sparkle link party, HERE. The Inspiration Gallery, HERE. And Best of the Nest, HERE.
