Remember back in college when you put a funnel in a watermelon and poured vodka in it and everyone stuck a straw in and drank from the melon?
Ah, the good old days.
I obviously majored in Mixology in school.
Here is a more refined way to have your watermelon cocktail.
One straw per person, please.
Watermelon Cooler: (makes 4 cocktails)
4 cups melon balls, scooped out of a whole watermelon w/ a melon baller
4 lime wedges for garnish (or mint leaves)
3/4 cup Vodka
1/3 cup Rose's lime juice (lime juice and simple syrup mixture)
Put the melon balls in the freezer for a few hours. When they are nice and firm, puree the frozen watermelon in a blender (saving a few frozen melon balls for ice cubes) and then adding the liquor & Rose's.
The cocktail will be slushy and refreshing! Garnish with mint leaves or lime wedges.
