Get your sip on | Watermelon Gin Fizz

So I have to start this post with a little bit of a confession…

I used to HATE watermelon. I couldn’t stand it. I know, blasphemy, right? But sometime over the last 15 years or so I started to fall in love with it! This summer I haven’t been able to get enough! It’s been so hot outside lately and an ice cold slice of watermelon might actually be the MOST refreshing thing ever.

I love to enjoy a cocktail or two, but when it’s hot outside I actually don’t drink very much. This Watermelon Gin Fizz is actually so light and sweet and easy to drink though, I might have one or two at the next cookout I go to!

Recipe:

– 2 cups diced watermelon ( I just used the kind that’s already cut up into chunks that you can buy at any grocery store)
– 2 1/2 ounces of gin
– 1 1/4 cup (or so) ginger ale
– lime juice to taste (I used about two tablespoons worth)

Puree watermelon chunks. You can use a juicer if you have one, but we don’t. I pureed them in my blender instead. There was a little bit of pulp, but it wasn’t too bad. If you have a strainer, you can always use that. Pour liquids together and shake it all up. Divide between two glasses, garnish with lime slices and enjoy!
