I am so excited to share this Mocktail with you. If you have heard of this variation before, just ride the excitement train with me. This is easily my new favorite summer beverage. Love does not even cover it.

Refreshing, sweet, and summery goodness all blended in this Watermel-jito. I don’t care what the calendar says… summer is not NEAR over and this drink well absolutely reinforce that statement.
