Watermelon Martini

Watermelon = Summer. Watermelon + Vodka = Awesome Summer. I had some delicious red melon hanging around this week and decided the absolute best thing I could do with it was create a cocktail worthy of my favorite summer fruit. I could eat watermelon every single day of summer vacation and never tire of the cool sweet snack. Especially if it’s been chilled in a river while I’m camping. Mmmmm.

This beverage is simple and perfectly sweet. Be careful though, they go down easy and pack a punch.

Watermelon Martini
makes 2 martinis

4 ounces vodka
2 teaspoons (or to taste, depending on how sweet your melon is) simple syrup
1 cup watermelon, cut into chunks

Muddle melon slightly in a martini shaker with ice. Add vodka and simple syrup. Shake until well chilled. Strain into martini glasses and serve.
