Looking for a green (shamrock) cocktail recipe for St. Patrick's Day? This melon-flavored martini, aka melontini, is super quick to make with only two ingredients: vodka and melon liqueur.

You'll be sipping it away in just a few minutes!

While this Melontini is an excellent alternative to traditional drinks this holiday, it's an easy, wonderful beverage you can enjoy year-round.

Whether you take your martini with gin or vodka, extra-dirty or garnished with an edible flower, you will love this refreshing martini that goes down easy.


Refrigerate your liquor before making melontini so it stays cold longer.

You can also chill your glasses in the refrigerator. Don't put them in the freezer; the glass will get frosty, which is only suitable for beer glasses.

You can crush ice in a blender or food processor before adding it to the cocktail shaker. Omit to crush the ice if you don't like your drinks watered down, as it melts faster.

If you don't have a cocktail shaker, you can use a mason jar or simply stir the mix with a spoon. —Jas
