I love watermelon and I eat it year round, but I go a little watermelon crazy every summer. I pretty much want to eat watermelon all day, every day and I never get tired of it!
In honor of my love for the juicy, delicious, amazing melon that seems to appear at all summer get-togethers – I had to try a Watermelon Cocktail.
Even though this recipe requires a blender (which means extra dishes), it’s super easy. This recipe is designed to be shared with friends, but when I made it, I was flying solo, so I just did a little beer math and made a single serving. 1 Cup of watermelon, a little more than 1 cup of coconut water, a 1/2tablespoon of fresh lime juice and blend.
Next fill up your glass with lots of ice and pour a shot of vodka (this recipe calls for vodka citron, but I used regular vodka). I decided to garnish with a watermelon slice, because I just needed another bite of watermelon!
This is a fun drink – the watermelon, lime and coconut are all equally present in the drink and don’t overpower each other. I hope you enjoy!
