This Watermelon Vodka Cocktail Is One Of My Favorite Summer Drinks

So it might be Monday and time to get back to work….but I figured you could all appreciate this cocktail anyways. I mean, it’s not like you guys don’t drink after a long day at work anyways…especially a Monday!

It has been so flippin’ hot lately…and recently, when we were on the cruise, my favorite way to cool down was with a super cold vodka something or another. And I figured with the 100 degree (and more) weather lately, that maybe I could bring the vacation feel home.

So I whipped up one of these babies for myself and I tired to imagine being back on the deck, under the sun, with the wind whipping by….but all I could feel was the sweat dripping down. And instead of a beautiful ocean, I saw my dead garden. But one thing from the cruise came through for me, this Minted Watermelon Cocktail!

    What i do not understood is actually how you’re not really a lot more smartly-favored
    than you may be right now. You are so intelligent. You understand thus significantly in the case of this matter, made me personally consider it
    from so many numerous angles. Its like women and men are not interested unless it
    is something to do with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs great.

    At all times handle it up!

    I find that Monday is when I need a cocktail the most; nothing washes away a case of the Mondays like a cool, sweet cocktail!

    I love the flavor combination of watermelon, lemon and mint! Definitely have got to give this a try before summer’s up 🙂 Looks so yummy!

    We’re on the same page! I just made a watermelon lemonade with vodka, but I’m loving this idea. I love the Three Olives flavored vodkas, gotta try the watermelon. I love the grape – with club soda, tastes just like grape soda.

    How does one juice a watermelon?

    Mandy,
    You can “juice” a watermelon, by pureeing the pulp and straining the juice through a strainer! 🙂

    This looks awesome! It has been ridiculously hot lately, and I’ve taken to making cocktails every night to “cool myself down.” I keep seeing watermelon cocktails and I keep meaning to try one: I think this recipe might just suck me in!

    This sounds like an awesome twist of a mojito, I soooo would like to try it! I have vodka at home, might make it this weekend.
