This would be the perfect summer cocktail for your wedding this summer or even for a backyard house party. Watermelon serves as a staple for these hot summer months, and it is so refreshing how could your guests resist!
We love great cocktail ideas (and cocktails of course), so we are going to feature a “Wedding Cocktail Unveil” throughout each month. That way you can decide on the perfect signature cocktail for your wedding or next social event.
Wedding Cocktail Unveil #1: Watermelon Cooler
3 pounds watermelon, rind and seeds discarded and the fruit cut into pieces, plus thin slices of watermelon for garnish
1/2 cup vodka
1/4 cup Triple Sec
3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice
In a blender puree the watermelon pieces and strain the puree through a very fine sieve set over a pitcher, discarding the solids. (There should be 2- 1/3 cups juice). Stir in vodka, the Triple Sec, and the lime juice, pour the cooler into glasses filled with ice cubes, and garnish each drink with a watermelons slice.
Serving tip: Mason jars are all the bustle, especially for summer weddings, so serve this delicious cooler in jars. You can also save the watermelon shell and serve the drink inside the hollow watermelon for a decorative twist.
