Wet Your Whistle | Watermelon Smash

Last week, I got the most adorable watermelon. It was about 1/8th the size of a normal sized one so it was absolutely perfect for 2 people. Instead of eating it, we decided to make cocktails to cool of since the weather was sweltering. This drink is so delicious...it's hard to just have one!
