Watermelon Vodka Cocktail Recipe

watermelon vodka cocktail recipeNorth London’s corner shops and independent supermarkets are full of fresh watermelons at this time of year, that you can buy whole (if you are having a party or if you really, really like watermelon) or in more manageable chunks.

Perfect for whizzing up in the blender for an easy but oh-so-nice summer cocktail.

Ingredients

Fresh watermelon, flesh peeled and de-pipped and cut into chunks
Good quality vodka, 1 – 2 shots per person
Crushed ice, or ice cubes
Sugar to taste
Fresh mint leaves to serve

- Put the watermelon chunks in a blender or food processor with a little water; process until smooth

- Add the vodka and sugar as required (you might not need to add any if the melon is sweet enough)

- Pour over ice in each glass, or in a pitcher

- Serve with mint leaves
