    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.

      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!
