Hello Summer! You taste delicious. 

Our favorite Chapman drink combines everything we love about Summer. Sweet refreshing watermelon, easy sipping light rum, sour lime, and an spiked popsicle garnish that takes this drink to a whole new level.  While you do have to plan ahead for the popsicle garnish, we believe it is worth the effort!
