Watermelon is one of those fruits that just screams summer. It reminds me of watermelon eating contests and spitting the seeds all over the driveway.

Of course that was when I was a kid. Now that I’m all grown up, I like to spike my watermelon. ๐Ÿ™‚

When I decided to make a watermelon cocktail, I knew I wanted to include Elderflower. I tried it for the first time about 6 months ago and fell in love.

When combined with some lime juice and cucumber, the watermelon and Elderflower make what is my new favorite cocktail. It’s so delicious and would appeal to so many. It’s sweet with the watermelon, but not too sweet. And very light. It was fun to play around with it and get it just right.

And since the Georgia Watermelon Association is having a contest, you can have fun making your own watermelon drink as well. The GA Best Summertime Drink (featuring watermelon) contest is going on through July 27, so you have plenty of time to get your creations in. They have four different categories too – from 21 and up, to family friendly. And to sweeten the deal, there are prizes! Everyone loves prizes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Who’s ready for some watermelon? I know I am!
