Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits during the summertime. It makes me think of barbecues and pool parties. Watermelon is so refreshing to eat on its own or in a salad with feta cheese and mint (yum!). I also love it in drink form, so I decided to use it in a cocktail with one of my favorite liqueurs, St-Germain Elderflower. Every drink I’ve had with St-Germain is amazing, so I decided to finally buy it. This watermelon cocktail with mint and lime juice is so delicious that I also made a nonalcoholic version since they can be a little too easy to knock back. You’ll thank me for both!
Makes 1 cocktail
1 1/2 ounces vodka
1 ounce St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur
2 ounces watermelon juice (purée a few slices of watermelon, rind removed, in a blender)
5 mint leaves
1/2 ounce lime juice
1/2 ounce agave nectar
1 watermelon ball or slice, for garnish
1 mint leaf, for garnish
Optional: This can also be made nonalcoholic with 3 1/2 ounces watermelon juice, 5 mint leaves, 1 ounce lime juice, 1 ounce agave nectar, and topped with soda water!
Enjoy, you Summer beauties!
