Cocktail Hour- Watermelon Cosmo


When deciding on what kind of cocktail I wanted to sip on in the Hamptons, I knew it had to be something with fresh, sweet summer watermelon.  This Watermelon Cosmo is made of fresh juices and is so refreshing while outside enjoying the summer breeze and salt air.  It is such a pretty pink color as well making it as lovely to look at as it is to sip...
