This is everyone’s new favorite summer cocktail! I bought a sugar baby seedless watermelon from the farm stand north of Yuba City this week. The 4th seemed like the perfect time to try a new cocktail so I juiced the watermelon in my juicer and ended up with the perfect cocktail starter!
8 ounces fresh watermelon juice
3 ounces Absolut vodka
2 ounces simple syrup
juice of one lime
granulated sugar, for rimming the glasses
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled half full of ice. Pour into chilled martini glasses that have been rimmed with sugar. Top with a basil sprig. Serves two, but you will need to make more….
