Watermelon is such a classic summer fruit. I bought the watermelon for these martinis from a farmer's roadside stand- fresh fruit directly from the farms are really the best way to go in my opinion. I wish I would have bought a Sugar Baby Watermelon because they were at the stand and BunnyCooks recommends using the sweetest watermelon you can find. These drinks are refreshing and fun, perfect for Labor Day weekend!
(serves 2 -3)
1 cup of strained sweet, fresh, watermelon juice
1/2 cup Vodka
Squeeze of fresh lime juice
Sugar to rim the glasses
Watermelon slices for garnish
Dip the rims of the martini glasses in a little water and then immediately dip into sugar. Set aside. Quickly mix ice with the watermelon juice, vodka, and fresh lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Only shake two or three times or else it will become very watery. Pour into the sugar rimmed glasses. Garnish with watermelon slices.
