Sipping Saturday-Watermelon Mint Julep

For this weeks sipping Saturday I’m featuring a mint julep! Throw on a fancy hat, put on a Lilly dress and enjoy this refreshing drink out of a fun straw. This is one of my favorite drinks during the summer because there is no way you can feel anything but fabulous while you sip on this cocktail. When I saw watermelon on sale I knew it needed to go in the drink this year. Here is a fun twist on a classic!
Watermelon mint julep
