Watermelon Martini

This is a great summer treat when you have an abundance of watermelon and want to try something new and refreshing. This martini drinks easy, is not overly sweet and is very satisfying on a hot day.

1 cup fresh squeezed watermelon juice
4 oz Vodka
1/4 cup simple syrup (this is just equal parts sugar and water heated til they are mixed)
1 juiced lime

  1. Juice watermelon til you have 1 cup
  2. Mix salt and sugar in equal proportions in a plate
  3. Take a piece of watermelon and run it over the rim of your glass
  4. Put glass on salted/sugared plate to coat the rim
  5. Fill glass with ice
  6. In a cocktail mixer (or two glasses put opening to opening) fill with ice, watermelon juice, vodka, syrup, and lime juice.
  7. Shake very well.
  8. Pour into glass
  9. Garnish with a piece of watermelon or mint.
  10. Enjoy!
