Happy February! Can you believe that a month has already come and gone this year? January was so wonderful, and I cannot wait to see what this month brings!

To start off the month on a fun and fancy foot, I'm sharing my recipe for a watermelon martini. It is the perfect cocktail recipe for Valentine's Day, and for any parties you are attending this month.

preparation

  • Wet the rim of your martini glass, and dip it onto a plate of sugar to create the sugar rim
  • Add ice to your cocktail shaker
  • Pour your vodka, Midori, lemon juice, and watermelon juice into your shaker, and shake well until mixed
  • Test for flavor and color. The Midori is a vibrant green color, so add more watermelon juice as needed until it becomes a vibrant melon color
  • Garnish with a watermelon square, and serve immediately!
