Ingredients that you’ll need to make a Melon Mixer cocktail
- Absolut Vodka
- Watermelon Puree
- Sweet & Sour Mix
- Club Soda
Try Absolut, Tito’s, or Ketel One for an all-around good Vodka.
I found the Watermelon Puree; it’s a bit pricey, so I also tried the Watermelon Syrup. Using the Watermelon Syrup makes a cocktail that tastes terrible. The Watermelon Puree is the only way to go.

Martini or cocktail, a good shake makes all the difference in the world. I have at least a dozen shakers, but this one from OXO is my favorite. It doesn’t leak, and the cap is a measuring cup that will measure from 1/2 ounce to 1.5 ounces. And it is dishwasher safe! You can’t go wrong with OXO.

And remember the glasses. This drink is meant to be enjoyed outside in the beautiful summer weather. You don’t want to take glass on the boat or by the pool, so the 20-ounce acrylic glasses (shown below) are perfect for any outdoor occasion. Remember to put a ‘double’ 2 portions of the Melon Mixer in the 20-ounce glass. If you want a single serving, the 15-ounce acrylic glasses in the photo above are a better choice. Remember, add lots of ice!
Melon Mixer Cocktail Directions
Fill the shaker half full of ice. Add the Vodka, watermelon puree, sweet & sour mix, and club soda. Shake gently, then pour your drink into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with a piece of watermelon. It’s amazing!
Since I didn’t want to waste the Watermelon Puree, I made a pitcher of Melon Mixers for my 4th of July Party. Mix it up the night before, put it in the refrigerator, stir well, and add ice when ready to serve. No need to add club soda. Everyone will love the Melon Mixer!
