This watermelon lime cocktail is super easy to make and it looks super impressive too. Have you ever had watermelon juice? It is heavenly and so refreshing! The lime juice perfectly offsets the sweetness of the watermelon.

The vodka is so light and refreshing that it doesn’t compete with the lovely simple flavor of the watermelon. This is perfect for summer entertaining and would also work awesome for a shower or party.

How to make a watermelon cocktail?

Combine the watermelon and lime juice in a blender and blend until very smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a small pitcher and stir in the vodka. Pour the cocktail into the glasses and garnish with lime wedges, enjoy!

How to pick a watermelon?

To pick ripe watermelon first you need to pick it up. Big or small, the watermelon should feel heavy for its size. Next look for the yellow spot, watermelons develop a splotch where they rest on the ground. When this splotch is creamy yellow, it’s ripe. Then give the watermelon a thump. Do this by tapping the underbelly of the watermelon. A ripe watermelon will have a deep hollow sound, under-ripe or over-ripe melons will sound dull.
