I love watermelon in the summer. This cocktail combines both my love of watermelon and my desire to sip on alcoholic beverages. Enjoy!
1 cup simple syrup (Bring 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan and cook until the sugar has completely dissolved. Let cool.)
5 cups watermelon, seeds removed
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/4 cups vodka
In a blender combine the watermelon, simple syrup, lemon juice and vodka. Blend until smooth. Pour into a shaker full of ice. Shake and strain into martini glasses.
