Ingredients

  • 2 heaping cups watermelon chunks

  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Simple syrup to taste see notes
  • 1/2 cup - 1 cup Vodka
  • Ice
  • Watermelon balls or triangles and lime segments for garnish

Instructions

  • Place watermelon chunks and watermelon juice in your blender, give it a whirl until it is pureed.
  • Add in lime juice and simple syrup and pulse until combined, taste and adjust to your preference of sweetness.
  • Add in 1/2 cup vodka, pulse and taste. Adjust to your preference for sweetness and strength.
  • Fill tall glasses with ice, and pour mixture over-top.
  • Garnish with watermelon balls and lime. Serve.

Notes

Add simple syrup according to how sweet your watermelon is as well as how sweet you prefer your cocktails. I add between 1/4 to 1/2 cup. To make simple syrup combine equal parts sugar and water, heat just until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, cool completely. Store in the refrigerator in a sealed jar for up to 2 weeks.
If you like a little fizz in your cocktails, add in a splash or two of club soda or lemon-lime soda.
