Watermelon and Strawberry Martini

July 14, 2018Sew White

Cool down this summer with my fresh and fruity Watermelon and Strawberry Martini. Simple to make and far too easy to sip.

This is a delicious fresh and fruity cocktail which is super easy to make and even easier to sip on in the sunshine. It’s simply made by whizzing up watermelon and strawberries in a blender and then shaking with vodka, fresh lime and ice. You can either serve it strained once to stop the ice and remove some of the pulp or double strain it so you have a smoother cocktail.

Watermelon and strawberries are my most favourite summer fruits. Together they work so well in puddings and of course in cocktails!

Let’s get shaking…

Watermelon and Strawberry Martini

Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 2 glasses

Ingredients

  • 200 grams watermelon without rind or seeds
  • 200 grams strawberries
  • Half of a lime
  • 75 ml vodka
  • 12.5 ml simple sugar syrup (optional)
  • ice cubes

Decorations

  • watermelon wedges
  • strawberries

Instructions

  1. Whizz up the strawberries and watermelon in a blender.

  2. Fill up a shaker half way with ice.

  3. Squeeze the juice of half the lime

  4. Add in the vodka, fresh lime juice, simple syrup and 150ml of the watermelon and strawberry juice. (save any left over watermelon and strawberry juice for another cocktail. It will last in the fridge for 2-3 days but will need a stir).

  5. Shake together and pour through a strainer in to the cocktail glasses.

  6. Decorate with a garnish of a mini sized watermelon slice and a strawberry and enjoy straight away.

The addition of a little strawberry and mini slice of watermelon makes the presented cocktail so cute! And of course a paper straw. I used one but cut in half for the two drinks so it sat prettily between the fruit.
