Ingredients that you’ll need to make a Melon Mixer cocktail
You’ll need Vodka. For an all-around good Vodka you can try Absolut, Tito’s or Ketel One. I found the Watermelon Puree, it’s a bit pricey so I tried the Watermelon Syrup as well. Using the Watermelon Syrup does not make the same cocktail. Honestly, it was terrible. The Watermelon Puree is the way to go. Last but not least, you’ll need Sweet & Sour mix and club soda.
Bar Tools that you’ll need to make a Melon Mixer cocktail
Martini or cocktail, I find that a good shake makes all the difference in the world. I have at least a dozen shakers but this one from OXO is by far 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 don’t forget 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 above) are perfect for any out door occasion. Keep in mind that you can put a ‘double’, 2 portions of the Melon Mixer in the 20 ounce glass. If you are looking for a single serving, the 15 ounce acrylic glasses in the photo below 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 the Watermelon Puree is a bit expensive, I decided to make a pitcher of Melon Mixers for my 4th of July Party. You can mix it up the night before, put it in the refrigerator, and when ready to serve, stir well and add ice. No need to add the club soda. Everyone will love the Melon Mixer!
