Hello, sweet summertime. This delicious cocktail really is the epitome of summer. I love the fresh flavors and I have been all about the watermelon, lately. Ordering watermelon cocktails when I go out and when I’m on vacation is the best, but why not make yummy watermelon drinks at home?! It’s so easy too!
When I’m making cocktails, Prairie Organic Vodka is my go-to for mixing up drinks. It combines great with lots of different fruits and juices and makes for a such a good cocktail. It’s easy to find at most local liquor stores and is easy to flavor with other ingredients. Prairie Organic Spirits was the first USDA Certified Organic spirits brand and remains the #1 brand in the organic category. No harmful chemicals or GMOs to worry about.
Beyond using organic ingredients in its spirits, Prairie Organic Spirits is dedicated to furthering the future of organic farming in general with their newly launched Spirit of Change Fund, which contributes 1% of sales to helping farmers go organic.
Ingredients for Vodka Watermelon Cocktails:
What do you need? Not much, it’s simple!
- Prairie Organic Vodka or Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka
- Chilled watermelon
- Freshly squeezed lime juice
- Fresh mint
How to Make Easy Watermelon Cocktails:
It’s SO super easy to whip these cocktails up! Simply blend watermelon with fresh lime juice and water. Transfer to a pitcher and combine with Prairie Organic Vodka. The Prairie Organic Cucumber Vodka would be a tasty option in this cocktail too. If you want your cocktail sweeter, stir in a packet of stevia or a bit of honey. Serve over ice and garnish with fresh mint, lime slices and/or small watermelon slices.
Tips for Making Vodka Watermelon Cocktails:
A few tips! Make sure that you are using freshly squeezed citrus. Like, DON’T BUY THE WEIRD BOTTLED LIME JUICE…it’s just not the same as squeezing your own. Also, your vodka matters. A high-quality vodka, like Prairie Organic Vodka goes down smooth and isn’t too harsh. It has hints of melon and pear on the nose, creamy on the palate, bright and smooth at the finish. Do yourself a favor and get some nice vodka.
We enjoyed these Vodka Watermelon Cocktails alongside my seared salmon tacos one night, and the combination was just outstanding. When our glasses were empty, we were quickly left wanting more. So be prepared to provide plenty of refills for your adoring guests.
