Get your sip on | Watermelon Gin Fizz

July 25, 2013

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!

    This sounds delicious and doesn’t seem to have all that much alcohol – my kind of drink!
