WATERMELON! What is the most sought after fruit of the summer? Of course, it’s Watermelon. Cold, juicy, sweet, refreshing and plentiful. While making my favorite summer salad one day, Watermelon Feta Salad, I wanted to something equally delicious with all the scrapes left over after I pressed whimsical shapes out of the watermelon for my salad.
Of course… A Cocktail! While you can use a variety of alcohol choices in this cocktail, I think vodka compliments the watermelon best without competing with its flavor. This cocktail is fast and easy to make and you can enjoy it just as much as a mocktail!
Ingredients for 2
- Watermelon – 4 cups, loosely tossed in a measuring cup
- Vodka – 2-3 shots
- Ice – about 1/2 cup just to chill it fast
- Lime – 1 tablespoon
- Salt – a pinch
Toss all the ingredients into a blender and give it a whirl until it becomes slush. Add a small slice of watermelon as a garnish. For a mocktail, simply leave out the vodka.
