Happy Martini Monday!
For the next 6 weeks, I’ll be sharing my favorite, homemade martinis every Monday. They’re all made with ingredients you probably already have at home.
This one would be awesome for your 4th of July get-togethers. Cheers!
Homemade watermelon martini
2 ounces vodka
1/2 cup chopped watermelon
1 cup ice
Add watermelon, vodka and ice in cocktail shaker. Shake it up and pour it out! Drink it and then smile. Because you are amazing. And you just made an amazing cocktail with no added sugar.
And, if this is too strong, just add some Pellegrino and it becomes a watermelon spritzer.
If you ask me, the best martinis are the ones with no added sugar. Watermelon is so sweet that it needs nothing else. This went great with our meal off the grill: chicken, shrimp, corn and even grilled romaine lettuce.
You could also add basil, like I did in my homemade mango-basil martini, for another layer of flavor.
