​Whiskey is typically not my go-to liquor, however, I think I finally found just the right combination for a summer drink! Since watermelon is in season now, we were able to find fresh melon on sale at our local store. We also discovered a new watermelon juice that became a fast favorite. From morning beverages to a cocktail mixer, this new watermelon juice paired perfectly for this cocktail.

  • Splash of Watermelon Juice
  • Sliced watermelon
  • Sliced cucumber


  1. Combine whiskey, ginger ale, and watermelon juice in a tall tumbler with ice.

Watermelon Whiskey Cocktail
This watermelon whiskey cocktail only needs a few ingredients, and it is important to use a quality bourbon whiskey. I decided to pair this cocktail recipe with I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

My husband usually likes scotch whiskeys, however, this smooth bourbon whiskey pairs well with sweet mixers. It's a southern-style bourbon which means it's a little sweeter on its own. It's made in Tullahoma, Tennessee, which my husband appreciates for its authentic distilling. Besides a quality spirit, you will need fresh watermelon and cucumber slices to garnish your drin.

A watermelon juice and ginger ale round out this simple summer cocktail.
