Watermelon Martini


I saw a woman drinking one of these cocktails at a Cuban restaurant Saturday night. It looked so refreshing!
Ingredients:

1 cup watermelon juice (press watermelon through a sieve)

1/2 cup Vodka

1/4 cup simple syrup (usually available at higher-end grocery stores. If you can't find any, boil 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar and refrigerate several hours.)

juice of 1 lime

3 tablespoons sugar

ice
Watermelon slice, for garnish
Preparation:

Put sugar in a wide-mouthed bowl. Wet the rim of each chilled martini glass using watermelon juice and dip the rim into the sugar.

Place the watermelon juice, vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker. Top with ice. Shake well.

Pour contents through strainer into martini glasses.

Garnish with a wedge of watermelon or lime if desired.


This cocktail needs a killer new name! What have you got?
