God Bless America

Having just celebrated the quintessential American holiday with all things “USA! USA!” I couldn’t resist trying out this Watermelon Martini recipe when I came across it. I am pleased to say that it now carries the much coveted Magpie Seal of Approval.Β  I can almost guarantee you will feel like a “jolly rancher” after a couple of them. But why stop at two?

  • salt as needed
  • white sugar as needed
  • 1 cup watermelon juice
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup watermelon schnapps
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 1 lime, juiced
  1. Combine some salt and sugar in a small bowl, and pour onto a small, shallow plate. Moisten the rims of 2 glasses with a piece of watermelon, and dip the moistened glass rims into the salt and sugar mixture; set aside.
  2. Pour the watermelon juice, vodka, watermelon schnapps, simple syrup, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker over ice. Cover, and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted. Strain into the prepared glasses.

    I can’t tell you just how delicious these (yes, these) were! It’s the kind of drink that just might sneak up on you and kiss you goodnight. πŸ™‚

  10. Ooh, watermelon martinis! I love watermelon, and martinis, so i can imagine the two go very nicely together!! But perhaps this summer isn’t the time to sample them (as much as I would like to!)?! I’m going to save this recipe for next summer, when I can martini myself right up!! x

    ps: thank you for your wonderful blog comments of late!
