I am no Pinterest queen here, but I do love making a few cocktails here and there, and these were perfect for our party. I used the watermelon flesh that we didn’t use for the jello shots to make the watermelon sangria mix. Below I’ve linked the recipes for these Easy to Make Watermelon Drinks for your next summer party or BBQ.
