  1. I've been on a watermelon jag lately. Maybe you can start with this watermelon drink from Traveler's Lunchbox?

    It's really easy, delicious and refreshing. I made a straight 1:1 ratio for the simple syrup but you may want to stick to the recipe.


    1. Hope you get this in time for your BBQ! It's the perfect summer drink.

      Watermelon Martini

      1 1/2 z vodka
      1/2 z lime juice
      1/2 z Triple Sec
      6 frozen watermelon cubes, 1/2 inch square
      1/2 shaker of ice
      1/2 z Chambord

      Place all ingredients in shaker and shake until well chilled, about 30 seconds,
      Strain into a chilled martini glass.

        I just realized, you should also put frozen watermelon cubes in the martini glass!
