This cocktail is so easy it’s almost embarrassing. And, since its main ingredient is watermelon, it’s embarrassingly healthy, too.
A good chunk of watermelon, roughly chopped and seeds removed, chilled
30ml flavoured vodka – your choice of vanilla-, raspberry- or strawberry-infused
Mint leaf, for garnish
Your fanciest coupe, chilled
Blitz the watermelon in a blender until it’s all slushy. Fine-strain into the glass. You don’t want any ‘bits’ in this drink. Add the vodka, stir gently, garnish and serve.
A sweet end to a glorious summer’s day.
