A watermelon spritzy is just like summer itself: effervescent, light, and cheery. Composed of grenadine, lemon lime soda, some mint, and watermelon, this tangy drink is great for humid summer days lounging by the pool. The drink can also be served at BBQs for an unexpected complement to grilled food.
