Cocktails Fruity Vodka

Watermelon Breeze

Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits to use in cocktails, it tastes yummy, holds a lot of juice and gives such a lovely colour to any drink.

This combo of watermelon and mint is super refreshing and very moreish. (Also I’m sure it counts for one of your five a day right?!)

I have used Stoli vodka simply because that was what was in the cupboard, this recipe does not call for anything premium and the citrus and fruits are what you really want to come through here.
