Watermelon-Spiked Vodka Gimlet

Serves 2


2 oz. watermelon juice

3 oz. vodka

½ oz. Rose’s lime juice

1 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice

For garnish (optional): ¼ cup of watermelon in ¼” dice, 2 1” cubes of watermelon, 2 round slices of lime, 2 cocktail picks or toothpicks


To make the watermelon juice, place about three cups of cubed watermelon in a blender and run until liquid. Pour the watermelon liquid through a fine-mesh strainer, discarding the pulpy fibers. Set aside the juice. (You may have extra for the next round.)

Put half the diced watermelon into each martini glass. In a cocktail shaker, add all the ingredients except garnishes, along with several handfuls of ice. Shake thoroughly and pour through the cocktail strainer into glasses. Garnish with skewered watermelon chunks and lime slices.
