6 Sweet Ways to Booze Up Your Watermelon

This summer, be a melon baller by adding booze to your watermelon. Sip on a Watermelon Martini (pictured above) — made with freshly pureed watermelon cubes and melon liqueur — or try one of the other refreshing recipes below.

Watermelon Margaritas

Have your watermelon on the rocks. Diced watermelon and tart lime juice make this drink a summer must-have.

Watermelon Champagne Cocktail

Mix watermelon juice and sweet vanilla vodka for a drink reminiscent of a fruity baked good. Top each glass off with a little fizzy champagne.

Watermelon Mimosa

Kick brunch off right with Bobby Flay’s take on the classic mimosa, using watermelon juice, tequila and Cava instead of orange juice and champagne.

Watermelon Vodka Gazpacho

This Spanish-style chilled soup combines watermelon and vodka with vegetables for a refreshing savory cocktail.

These tiny treats are an adorable addition to any summer celebration. This recipe uses strawberry Jell-O for its bright color, but feel free to substitute watermelon gelatin instead.
