Beach Bust

The saying goes, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade," but what if life (or in my case my husband) gives you a giant watermelon for a beach party that's rained out?  Hmmmm. Let me think. Make watermelon martinis!
So instead of preparing for a rainy day, I used my rainy day to prepare for a future cocktail party. I pureed the watermelon in the blender, added some grated ginger, a generous squeeze of lime and mixed it into a half a bottle of vodka.
Its now tucked in the freezer and ready for a hot, sunny afternoon.

  1. What a great idea Judith!

  2. I never heard of watermelon in a martini, but I'm a new fan. Can't wait for the summertime.
