National Watermelon Day

Happy Thursday! Today is officially National watermelon day and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a drink. Watermelon is the fruit of Summer, so it’s only right we pay tribute to it in the hottest month of the year. Our friends over at Angry Orchard wanted to get in on the fun and sent us a fun recipe to try courtesy of NYC Mixologist Jeremy Oertel that combines watermelon punch with a twist of hard cider. Sounds like a winner to me. Oh, and speaking of punch, have you checked out our watermelon punch bowl DIY guide? Do it now!
