Summer is finally here and there's no better way to celebrate than with a refreshing—and a bit boozy—drink in hand. Our personal favorite festive cocktail for sunny days and warm weather is this watermelon slushie. Get ready to hit the lounge chair with your photo-worthy drink that will help keep you hydrated all day. Best part? It takes less than five minutes.
