A girls gotta have a cocktail sometime… and a Summer Watermelon Cosmo is one of my favorites! Especially this one which is healthy (ok, I’m pushing it here 😉), delicious and refreshing. If you had a chance to read my post about the benefits of watermelon juice, you will agree its worth the effort to make your own juice. And of course, if you have any leftover juice, you can make yourself a Summer Watermelon Cosmo Cocktail!
In a pinch though, you can always use store bought watermelon juice for this watermelon . I like WTRMLN WTR Watermelon Cold Pressed Juice or EVOLUTION Fresh Watermelon Juice. Another recommendation is to purchase a cocktail shaker for making martinis. Give your Watermelon Cosmo a few strong shakes and you get the little ice crystals that are “oh so good” in a Cosmo!
INGREDIENT SUGGESTIONS FOR WATERMELON COSMO
- Fresh watermelon juice
- Watermelon wedges (for garnishing)
- ½ lime for juicing
- Simple Syrup
MIXING SUGGESTIONS FOR WATERMELON COSMO
- Freezer chilled martini glasses (just a few minutes is good)
- Cocktail shaker
- All ingredients placed in the shaker (except for wedges)
- Shake, shake, shake
- Pour and enjoy – it’s that simple!
