The Fresh Watermelon-tini #cocktail

6 Jun

My friends, it’s hot! It’s REALLY hot here in Memphis (we’ve already topped 100 degrees a couple of times). While shopping I picked up two small, or personal (ha ha!), watermelons thinking I know I could make a deliciously smart sip with this! My vodka is chillin’ in the freezer and my fresh watermelon juice cooling in the refrigerator. It’s really that simple, and delicious!

Getting ready….

I have a FABULOUS blender called a Vitamix–it has 2 horsepower. While it’s no Aston Martin, it will pulverize anything!! This smart sip has less than 150 potassium-rich calories!

Cut the small watermelon in half, then cut into managable peices. Peel from the rind and put into the blender. Blend completely until it’s a thin liquid. Put the blender pitcher containing juice in the refrigerator to chill at least 3 hours.

Time to serve!

6 oz very cold, fresh watermelon juice

1 oz chilled vodka

Mix it up!! I’m serving 4 people so I just add the vodka to the pitcher and blend. Pour into chilled martini glasses. Garnish with a thin slice of watermelon. Stay cool!
