This Berry Watermelon Limeade Martini is made with homemade berry watermelon limeade, vodka, and St. Germain and is the perfect cocktail recipe for chilling out this summer season.
TGIF! As promised, today I’m back to share a martini recipe using the Berry Watermelon Limeade that I posted last week. That’s right, we are shaking up a Berry Watermelon Limemade Martini.
I’m all about cocktails that take advantage of the fresh flavors of the season. Bursting with the summertime flavors of strawberries and watermelon, this martini does just that.
In case you missed it, you can grab the recipe for the Berry Watermelon Limeade here. You’ll need that to shake up one (or more) of these martinis. You can mix up the limeade recipe on a Monday and enjoy it all week.
Whether you drink it on its own, add liquor to create a cocktail, make a refreshing salad dressing with it, or use it to shake up one of these martinis, it’s handy to have a pitcher prepared and waiting in the refrigerator when you need it.
As you’ll see below, I recommend straining the limeade with a fine mesh sieve before using it for a martini. This will remove any pulp or seeds, giving you a smoother and more attractive cocktail.
Some of you might remember that I’m a big fan of St. Germain. I’ve been talking about it here on IBC for years now. If you haven’t yet picked up a bottle, I hope this recipe will give you the nudge you need.
One more thing: In case you prefer gin over vodka, you can easily substitute gin in this recipe.
Let’s shake up a cocktail. You deserve one!
- 2 ounces berry watermelon limeade strained
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce St. Germain liqueur
- Lime wedge
- Strawberry, lime slice, or watermelon wedge for garnish
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the berry watermelon limeade, vodka, St. Germain, and juice from a lime wedge. Shake vigorously.
Strain into a martini glass and garnish with your choice of a fresh strawberry, lime slice, or watermelon wedge.
