Summer means cocktails – preferably accompanied by fresh fruit, flip flops and a not a care in the world. Watson’s Catering has a refreshing take utilizing RIPE, one of our favorite craft juices, called the Watty Melon Flip Flop that is sure to become one of your summer evening staples.
The WattyMelon Flip Flop Cocktail
Yield: 1 cocktail
½ shot glass of Tito’s vodka
1 shot RIPE margarita mix (lime sour)
1 pint of cubed seedless watermelon
1 cup of ice
In a blender puree the watermelon and strain the puree through a very fine sieve set over a pitcher, discarding the solids. (There should be at least 2 shots of juice). In a martini shaker add ice, vodka, margarita mix and watermelon juice. Shake. Pour cocktail into an 8oz glass and garnish with a watermelon wedge.
