  • 2/3 cups seedless watermelon chunks
  • 1 1/2 ounces citrus vodka
  • 1 juice of lime wedge
  • 4 ounces ginger beer
  • watermelon wedge and mint leaves to garnish
  • ice cubes


  • Place the watermelon chunks into the pitcher of a blender. Cover and puree until smooth.
  • Strain the watermelon, reserving the juice. Discard the pulp.
  • Place 1/4 cup of watermelon juice, vodka, and lime juice into an ice filled cocktail shaker. Cover and shake to thoroughly combine.
  • Strain cocktail into an ice filled copper mug. Top with ginger beer, and garnish with watermelon wedge and mint sprigs.


  • I 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?
  • I use these copper mugs, and this blender to puree the watermelon to perfection. {affiliate links}
