Watermelon season is in full swing and Shaker One has discovered baby seedless watermelons. Like a personal pan pizza of melon…..sweet and ultra juicy, these babies beg to be made into a cocktail.
Rooting around in the fridge and freezer one 90 degree evening I discovered some Trader Joe’s lime ice pops abandoned in the door. <lighbulb moment>
Watermelon Lime Martini:
2 shots mostly melted lime pop
2 shots vodka of choice (I used Titos)
2 shots strained fresh watermelon juice
splash of fresh lime juice
Shake with ice, strain and slurp up faster than you can believe. Wow and yum!
If you don’t have any sad abandoned lime ice pops in your freezer, simply substitute Rose’s lime juice (and up the fresh lime juice to equal the Rose’s to counteract the sweetness).
