Watermelon and Lime Martini

I have a great martini recipe for you. If you don’t drink, skip the vodka as this is something you want to try . If you don’t have a juicer, just blend the watermelon and then strain it (or don’t, it just won’t be as smooth.)

Serves 1

Ingredients:

1/4 of a large watermelon

1 lime

a shot of vodka or maybe two depending on the type of day you had 😉

Method:

  1. Wash the watermelon and lime before slicing.
  2. Cut your watermelon in half, then half the half, take of rind. Cut the fruit into piece that will easily fit into the juicer.
  3. Put watermelon pieces into fridge and let chill for 1/2 or so.
  4. Cut and peel the lime.
  5. On low speed, drop the watermelon in, then the lime, switch it to high.
  6. Add some ice and your vodka.
  7. Enjoy.

If you don’t have a juicer, then like I said just use a blender, but you need to juice the lime. You can get a cheap hand held citrus juicer at the dollar store, or an inexpensive power citrus juicer at a discount grocery store like Superstore, Walmart.

NOTE** If you put your watermelon in the fridge first you tend to get more juice. Fresh juice will still be good up to 72 hrs I heard, but it’s really the best very cold the day of making it or the next day.

If you are making this for a party, I would use 4-5 limes per whole watermelon.

Don’t skip the lime. The lime gives it a little something special. If you skip it, all you taste is watermelon and I personally didn’t like straight watermelon juice. I drank this juice all the time when I was rebooting, once I was done the reboot, I made this drink.

Yes, I know, it’s not in a martini glass, but this just saves me from having to get up a few seconds after making the first one, to pour another one 😉

How are you going to martini today?

    1. It really is. Canadian Food Bloggers just put out an ebook all about watermelon. I’m sure there’s recipes one will need to veganize but have you heard of a watermelon float?

    1. I think so. I know it would be good in a apple, orange lemon juice or a carrot and apple lemon juice or as I call it the pucker up juice. Once it doesn’t taste tart you know to lay off 😉 lol
