Summer is almost here, and nothing screams summer like watermelon! Visions of picnics and barbecues with table lined with delicious food and drinks.

Watermelon juice – check! Lime juice – check! Citrus vodka – check! Top it off with bubbly ginger beer and this Watermelon Moscow Mule might just make you forget that it is 120 degrees outside…might! 😉 Okay probably not, but at least they are easy to make and watermelons are readily available everywhere.

How to make a Watermelon Moscow Mule

Place the watermelon chunks into the pitcher of a blender. Cover and puree until smooth.

I knew that I was making more than one cocktail, so I cut 2 big slices of watermelon into chunks. 😉

Strain the watermelon, reserving the juice. Discard the pulp.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • As I noted above, I just threw a bunch of watermelon chunks into the blender and made enough juice to make about 5 cocktails. I stored the leftover juice in a glass jar in the refrigerator just in case I needed to make another one.
  • I squeezed the lime wedge into the cocktail shaker, and then tossed the lime in. A little extra flavor is always a good thing, right?
