People go crazy for this drink each spring and summer, whenever we first get fresh watermelon in.
It started a few years back, when the bar where I work started mixing Bacardi Dragon Berry into mojitos and serving them with strawberries. Then came the watermelon, which people sometimes seem to fiend for. We get asked about it all year round:
