    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!

      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.
