Watermelon Lemondrop Cocktail







I made these recently for a get-together with some friends, and they were a big hit.  Even the guys liked them :)  It's sweet and tart... a bit like a watermelon jolly rancher, but probably even more delicious.





DRINKS FOR TWO!!

3 shots vodka
3 shots fresh lemon juice
3 shots watermelon juice
1 shot triple sec
3 Tbs sugar

Shake with ice
Pour into martini glasses
Serve!


NOTES

~ To get watermelon juice, you can crush it (I just smashed some over our regular citrus juicer) or use what's in the bottom of the container, if pre-cut.

~ Note that you can only make about two drinks at a time in a cocktail shaker.

~ Placing a chunk of watermelon at the bottom of the glass was the best part of the drink.  The liquid soaks into the fruit, so you've got a nice treat waiting for you at the finish line :)


Hope you guys like it!

  4. I love drinks that are a little bit tart- this sounds delish! I can't stop eating watermelon this summer and have been smashing some in gin and tonics. I'll have to try this out for something different :)
