'I've Been Drinking Watermelon': 6 Watermelon Cocktails for Summer

As Beyonce boasts in her hit song 'Drunk in Love,' she enjoys sipping on a good watermelon cocktail (that's what she means, right?). When it comes to warm weather drinks, there's nothing more refreshing than a melon cocktail.

It's no secret that we love fresh fruit cocktails here at Celebrations, especially during the hot summer months. Nothing makes for a better beverage than fresh fruit and some liquor. And when the sun is beating down and temperatures skyrocket, sweet, juicy watermelon hits the spot. 

Of course, we love mixing the summer fruit with some tequila or vodka for an adult beverage, but you can easily add some tasty herbs, sweet ingredients or club soda for a kid-friendly mocktail. 

Mix fresh watermelon juice with some Skinnygirl Cucumber Vodka for a refreshing Skinny Cucumber-Watermelon Cooler. If tequila is your liquor of choice, opt for some silver tequila and mix up a Skinny Watermelon Cooler.

Watermelon also tastes great mixed with some fresh mint leaves, white rum, sweetener and club soda in a Low-Calorie Watermelon Mojito. Or keep it classic with a Watermelon Maragrita, made with tequila, triple sec, lime juice and salt.

If cocktails aren't your jam, make this crisp Watermelon Mint Cooler for a delicious family-friendly punch. And to really get creative, mix up some Sparkling Watermelon Lemonade and serve right from the melon itself!

So when the temperatures skyrocket and you want to cool down with something cool and refreshing, make a drink with fresh watermelon juice.

And if Beyonce drinks it, it must be cool -- right?
