Nothing screams summer quite like watermelon, so it’s fitting August 3rd has been declared National Watermelon Day!

Our friends at SVEDKA Vodka, KIM CRAWFORD Wine, and the DREAM Hotels are here to help you celebrate with some fantastically refreshing recipes!

Not only is watermelon a flavor that is universally loved and associated with summer holidays and picnics, but it’s easy to pair with just about any spirit and other fruits, making it ideal for refreshing punches and other cocktails. It also helps that it is easy to juice, muddle, and even use as a convenient vessel for a summer party!
