Why am I surprised that watermelon schnapps exists? There's a schnapps for everything. I once saw popcorn schnapps.

tamago, it is breezy and good.

ap, it tastes like sharp watermelon.

pc, it is. It's a nice fit for summer.

susie, I probably would serve some kind of Mediterranean tapas with them.

suze, it is good for one.

ac, I fear the popcorn schnapps.
