This watermelon martini is one of my favorite drinks! I love all things watermelon so I guess it would make sense why I like it so much. This is a drink that I enjoy all year but it’s really yummy on those hot summer days.

It’s super fresh tasting and just feels like summer when sipping on it.

Directions:

You’ll want to start with the simple syrup. Add the water and sugar to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stirring, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside and let cool.

Take about 2 cups of fresh watermelon and run it through the food processor, you should end up with about 1 cup of watermelon juice.

Mix together the sugar and salt for the martini glass rim.

Rub some fresh watermelon around the rim, then dip the rim into the sugar/salt mixture.

Pour the watermelon juice, simple syrup, lime juice and vodka into a cocktail shaker. Add your ice and shake well.

Pour the watermelon vodka mixture into the martini glass and enjoy your watermelon martini!
