Ingredients that you’ll need to make a Melon Mixer cocktail

Melon Mixer Ingredients
Melon Mixer Ingredients
  1. Absolut Vodka
  2. Watermelon Puree
  3. Sweet & Sour Mix
  4. Club Soda

Tips

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.

Bar Tools that you’ll need to make a Melon Mixer cocktail

Here is an awesome product to help YOU make the most incredible drinks. Impress your family and friends and be the BEST Cocktail Barista in your neighborhood.

OXO Steel Cocktail Shaker
Steel Cocktail Shaker

Martini or cocktail, a good shake makes all the difference in the world. I have at least a dozen shakers, but one favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak; you won’t have to hit the shaker against the sink to get the top off, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces with clearly marked labels. Measure the perfect amount every time. And it is dishwasher safe!

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!

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Ounces Vodka For cocktails I typically use Absolut
  • 1 Ounce Watermelon Puree
  • 1 Ounce Sweet & Sour Mix
  • Splash of club soda

Instructions
 

  • Fill a shaker half full of ice
  • Add the vodka, watermelon puree, sweet & sour and club soda
  • Shake gently and pour into a cocktail glass filled with ice

Notes

I found that the watermelon puree can be a bit pricey if you are making just a couple of drinks. Instead I made a pitcher of Melon Mixers for my 4th or July party. They can be made one day in advance, and stored in the refrigerator with no ice. When you are ready to serve, add ice to the pitcher instead of the club soda. 
Recipe for 2 quarts of Melon Mixer: 4 cups Vodka, 2 cups Watermelon Puree, 2 cups Sweet & Sour mix. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Then stir well, add ice and you are ready to go!
