Watermelon Vodka Cocktail

Cocktail, Watermelon Vodka Cooler, Summer

The name says it all. Watermelon.Vodka.Cocktail

The flavor is perfectly summery and fresh with the freshness of watermelon and the right amount of vodka. But don’t restrain yourself from adding more vodka as per your taste. The rule is there are no rules when it comes to mixing cocktails.

When I was testing this Watermelon Vodka Cocktail, I tried two ways.

1. Straining the watermelon and using just the juice

2. Not straining it at all and blending it into a very thin puree with vodka and lemon juice and then pouring straight into the glasses.

The juiced version made it to the blog because I liked it just a tad better. But again, it’s entirely up to you how you want to go for it. If you have a really sweet seedless watermelon, then you can just use the blended version.

Choose whatever works best for you and your guests and in that moment.

Cocktail, Watermelon Vodka Cooler, Summer

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups watermelon juice ( Blend the watermelon and then strain the puree through a fine sieve to discard the solid parts. You should get about 2 cups of juice)
  • 1/2 cup vodka (I used gray goose)
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • Soda to top

METHOD:

  • Mix the watermelon juice, lime juice and vodka with few cubes of ice in a cocktail shaker.
  • Pour the cocktail half way through the glasses.
  • Top with soda water and serve.

NOTE: Since the watermelon was very very sweet, I didn’ t add any sugar. But you can always add sugar or agave or honey if you prefer your cocktails on the sweeter side.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
