Watermelon Drink Ideas + Tips:
What flavor goes well with watermelon?
There are so many flavors that pair well with watermelon that you can serve with your watermelon lemonade martini. Mint and feta are two of my favorite flavors to have with watermelon. Blackberries are also a great fruit that tastes amazing with watermelon! To add a spicy flair to watermelon you can add jalapeño or your favorite spicy pepper.
What is a good mixer with watermelon vodka?
If you need to add a mixer to your watermelon vodka then we’ve got a couple of perfect ones for you to try. Club soda is always a great mixer for any flavored vodka. Watermelon vodka can also be mixed with cranberry juice to make a light refreshing cocktail. And for a fun cocktail, you can always make a watermelon margarita with lime juice, triple sec, and watermelon vodka.

Of course, there are many other ways to use watermelon and vodka in recipes.
You can juice watermelon and add it to an ice cube tray with a touch of vodka. This would be so delicious for a summertime drink.
You can cut watermelon cubes, soak them in vodka, and then use little skewers with some mint and feta for a fun adult appetizer.
How about blending watermelon and ice then adding some vodka for a tasty frozen drink?! The ideas are endless on mixing these two ingredients.

Watermelon Lemonade Martini Drink Recipe:
Ready to get started to make one for yourself?! Here is what you need.
- 2 parts Hubert’s Lemonade Watermelon
- 1 small can of Sprite
- 1 part vodka
- Limes – juice of 1/2 lime and garnish
Step 1: Add the ice into your favorite drink shaker
Fill shaker about 3/4 full of ice so it is not to the top of the shaker. You want just enough to shake the contents really well.
Step 2: Add 1 7.5oz can of Sprite into the shaker
Gently pour a can of sprite into the shaker so it doesn’t overflow. This will give your drink some fizz and bubbly.
Step 3: Add 2 parts watermelon lemonade
Hubert’s Lemonade Watermelon is my favorite nonalcoholic watermelon lemonade drink to use for this recipe. It has such a great sweet and sour taste to it.
Step 4: Add 1 part vodka
Add vodka to the shaker next. This can be the vodka of your choice.
Step 5: Add juice from half a lime
This is my secret ingredient! I love the extra sour taste it adds to this drink. I have found that the smoother the skin on the lime the juicier it will be so make sure to look out for that when grabbing one from the grocery store.
Step 6: Shake contents well to create this amazing refreshing cocktail
Once your drink is mixed enough, pour into a beautiful glass of your choice.
Step 7: Garnish with a slice of lime and coat the rim of the glass with sugar
This is the best part because it will make your drink look fancy! Use a slice of lime to coat the rim of the glass with juice and turn it upside down into a plate of sugar. The sugar will coat the rim for a sweet taste when drinking your watermelon lemonade martini. I also like to add a little slice to the edge of the glass to dress it up even more.
Want to make your drink recipe a little sweeter? Blend watermelon and strain for more sweet juice to add to your mixture.
