Author Notes

I came up with this to please my girl friends in the hot tub while dreaming of warmer weather...April, May? Remember it's cold where I live. This was spring in a glass. Refreshing, cool, and hydrating. The mint and lime zest make it. Make sure the melon (you could use any kind) is ripe and remove the seeds. We love this,enjoy! —SaySchwartzAndBeSure

What You'll Need
  • 1 choice watermelon cut into ice-cube size pieces
  • 1 bunch fresh mint leaves
  • Good quality vodka of your choice
  • vermouth (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  1. Cut your watermelon in half and proceed to chop it into bite size cubes. Remove any seeds.
  2. Place cubes in a zip-lock bag loosely and freeze.
  3. When guests are ready, use per martini: 4/5 cubes of the watermelon, 1 fresh mint leaf, 1 1/2 oz of vodka,one icecube, vermouth if you need/like it (less is more) and a pinch of lime zest.
  4. Blend all together quickly so it is slushly. Decorate with a mint leaf, small slice of lime or a flower and a straw. Serve in a chilled martini glass.
