Watermelon and Cucumber Cocktail

Drink: Watermelon and Cucumber Cocktail

This is the most refreshing cocktail we've ever had. Also, that color from muddling the watermelon makes the best pinkish sunset-like hue.


  • 4 oz Effen Cucumber Vodka
  • 4 (1-inch) cubes of seedless watermelon
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 2 oz simple syrup


  1. Combine vodka, watermelon cubes and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Muddle all ingredients well. Add simple syrup, fill with ice, cover and shake until ice cold.
  2. Rim the glasses with a cut lime and dip in the lime rim mixture.
  3. Fill the glasses with ice and strain the ingredients from the shaker into the glasses.
  4. Garnish with a watermelon slice, a cucumber slice, and a mint sprig.

Rim mixture: Equal amounts salt and sugar combined with some freshly grated lime.
