Watermelon and Vodka Summer Cocktail

If you have been following my posts, you will be ever so aware that I am mildly obsessed with my brand new juicer and have been experimenting with lots of yummy juice recipes. Over the weekend I was keen to try making a cocktail fro fresh juice and decided the perfect fruit to juice for a sunny weekend sip was watermelon. The recipe below is a but rough, as I was making it up as I went, so feel free to tweak it to your taste and make sure to try it and add anything you might need. I accidentally (I swear!) poured a teensy bit too much vodka in my jug to begin with but just countered it with more lemonade and it turned out fine.

Fresh Watermelon, Cucumber, Mint, Lemonade & Vodka Cocktail

  • 1/4 watermelon
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 8 mint leaves to juice + garnish
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 1/3 cup vodka

the most divine summer cocktail

 

Happy Sipping!

Watermelon, Pear, Cucumber, Grape and Mint Juice!

That’s right! And it was GOOD! I used:

  • 1/4 of a 1/4 watermelon (I bought a quarter slice of watermelon and chopped off a quarter to juice..I guess that makes it one sixteenth? Ugh, math. Who needs it? Just use some watermelon!)
  • 1 pear
  • about 1/4 of a cucumber (ever so many quarters!)
  • 10 grapes
  • 3 leaves of mint

and it's pink! bonus!

I’ve basically been throwing together any fruit I have in the fridge so far and crossing my fingers and toes that it is drinkable.

Please, do share your recipes with me! It may end badly next time..I have broccoli in my fridge….
