Introducing: The summer watermelon martini.
You need 4 ingredients to make this refreshing drink:
- Personal-sized watermelon (seedless is less prep-work, but if you don't mind taking out seeds, the seeded watermelons are much juicier)
- Ice (not a lot, just a little to make it slushy)
- and the secret ingredient... watermelon vodka.
The vodka is the main component to this drink. Regular vodka and the taste of alcohol is too strong. Watermelon vodka is sweet, and makes this drink more about the rich melon flavor, and less about the booze.
But don't worry, the booze is still there.
Step one is to take about a dozen ice cubes and grind them up in the blender. Watermelon blends easily, ice does not. The pre-crush will make the drink much less chunky.
After chopping the melon into small pieces, place them on top of the chopped ice into the blender.
Add 5oz of watermelon vodka into the mix. One blender-full will make about 4 servings, so booze-up accordingly (I played it a little conservative...)
Set the blender to the 'puree' setting, and let it do its thing for about 10 seconds. Pour and serve.
If you feel creative, you can save a few pieces of melon to use as a garnish.
