Recipe: Watermelon cooler


It’s been a beautiful day here and when we got back after Woodcraft Folk I decided I needed to use the aging watermelon to make a cocktail.

3 measures vodka
1 measure sugar syrup
Half a watermelon, thoroughly muddled.

Mix these in a cocktail shaker (I was given one as a present for my 30th birthday) over a fair amount of ice.  Strain into glasses over ice if you don’t have pink elephants. Top up with either sparkling elderflower (me) or tonic water (the other half). Drink slowly while watching Nashville.
