It’s no secret that come Memorial Day weekend, we all want to enjoy four things – Food, friends, relaxing and DRINKING! Well, there’s one drink that is super refreshing, and is just perfect for your Memorial Day weekend festivities – Watermelon Martinis. These drinks are so incredibly delicious. You’ve gotta try one like RIGHT NOW!
Here’s how to make them:
– 2-4 oz. citrus vodka (depending on how strong you like your martinis)
– 1 oz. Watermelon Pucker (if you add too much like I did, it will be too red like the one pictured above LOL! But, hey, it tastes really yummy with all that watermelon in it!)
– ½ oz. Cointreau or triple sec
– Splash of pink lemonade
– Splash of Sprite
Fill a martini shaker with all of the ingredients except for the Sprite and ice. Shake for 15-30 seconds and strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with a splash of 7-up and garnish as desired.
My friend Letty does her own spin on this drink by adding pureed watermelon to the mix. Instead of using Watermelon Pucker, she adds about a half cup of cold pureed watermelon. She’s even swapped the citrus vodka for Florida Cane’s Watermelon Vodka to give it more of a watermelon flavor!
