In case I haven’t mentioned it before – it’s pretty hot here. I’ve been eating watermelon like crazy because, well, I think it just might be the most refreshing fruit on the planet.
I had been thinking of making watermelon margaritas until I had the most refreshing elderflower & vodka watermelon cocktail made by the Tipsy Texan a few weeks ago at the opening of Métier Cook’s Supply (a really cute kitchen supply store, btw – if you’re in Austin, go check it out).
This is definitely a simplified version but I get impatient to make cocktails that have more than just a few easy ingredients. The hardest part here is de-seeding your watermelon and blending it into juice. (The second time I made these, I got lazy and just bought some cold-pressed watermelon juice).
This recipe doesn’t have exact measurements because I find some watermelons to be sweeter than others. Play around and make these as sweet or as tart as you like.
