Watermelon Sunset

Watermelon Sunset

Welcome to another Friday Cocktail. With watermelon season officially here, we wanted to do something special with one of my favorite summer fruits. 

And the Watermelon Sunset is the perfect cocktail to sip during the summer months. This incredibly tasty brandy cocktail has the fruity and sweet taste of fresh watermelon juice and a refreshing zing from the lime juice.

If you love fruity drinks, or looking for an ideal signature drink to serve at your next gathering, BBQ, or dinner party, the Watermelon Sunset is for you!
