    Do you think that some of these vodka watermelon drinks could be adapted into mocktails?

    1. Watermelon season is May to September but I think weather across the board has been a bit weird this year. Nothing is following normal patterns this year. You can always add a bit of simple syrup to balance the flavors if you need to.
