What’s Wrong with a Slight Watermelon Obsession?

New Juicy Watermelon Vodka from Seagrams
There is just something about summer that gets me obsessed with watermelons. I guess it IS watermelon season and you can’t take a step into a grocery story without seeing them. So maybe it’s a forced obsession. Is that a thing?

Regardless, when we heard that Seagram’s Vodka was launching a new watermelon flavor, we were excited to try it. The shipment came with suggested recipes that I pondered over for a while. But eventually, my other half, Robert, said I was overthinking it.  So we kept it simple. Super simple. We just added Club Soda. Can’t get easier than that! And it was super refreshing and delicious. Perfect for summer days.

And of course, I happened to have watermelon around so I could add a garnish. You do have to really like watermelon to enjoy this drink. Seriously, it tastes just like watermelon! All the juicy, sweet flavor is captured perfectly while providing a 35% alc/vol . I can see why the company wins awards.  And if you come over, don’t expect to find the bottle here. My mom might have “borrowed” it. Good thing it’s not too pricey at $11 for the 750ml bottle.

And if you are in the South Florida area, our friends at Cabo Flats has crafted up a gorgeous Watermelon Mint Martini.

5 cubes Fresh Watermelon
1oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

Pre chill the martini glass with ice
Muddle watermelon cubes in shaker, squeeze in 2 lemon halves

ENJOY!
With this new obsession, I’ve decided to try and make watermelon ice cubes. Wish me luck. I’ll let you know how they come out.
Cheers!
