Cuba Libre embraces the watermelon.
| Official

Watermelon is an ideal base for summer cocktails, and August remains peak season for enjoying this popular fruit. Its sweet, refreshing flavor is delicate enough to complement a variety of cocktail ingredients, from gin to chili peppers.

Many cocktail programs are celebrating the watermelon bounty by creating drinks using the fruit in new and interesting ways, and there's something out there for every taste.

Check out these bars and restaurants for unique takes on the watermelon cocktail. Some restaurants are only featuring watermelon drinks during the summer months, so get going.
