Watermelon Martini

Tracy Byrne

Are you ready for some summer in a glass?  Are ready for a cocktail?  I am!  Summer break cannot come soon enough!  To all my teaching friends already on summer break, I hate you.  To all my non-teaching friends, you can send your hate to me on June 28!   There is nothing like dragging out the school year until the last week of June.

Since I have a shaker now, I obviously need to make martinis all the time!  This martini is sweet, delicious, and much thicker than I would have thought.  The watermelon makes the drink super refreshing.  I had to make 4 batches before the proportions were right.  Things started off a little strong, but eventually I found the perfect ratio.  Luckily Ruth was there to help me drink rough drafts.  There is no waste in our apartment!

Watermelon Martini Adapted from Skinny Tastes Yield - Directions for 1 drink, but enough watermelon and lime juice for 4-5 drinks

1/2 of a 5 lb watermelon 3 limes

4 ounces watermelon puree 1 ounce fresh lime juice 1 ounce citrus vodka (Absolut Citron) 1 ounce melon liqueur (Midori) 4-5 ice cubes

Small pieces of watermelon for garnish

  1. Cut the watermelon into small pieces and puree.  I used an immersion blender, it worked very easily and very quickly.
  2. Juice the limes.
  3. Add all the ingredients into a shaker.  Shake for about 30 seconds and strain into a martini glass.
  4. Garnish with a small slice of watermelon
