Summer Cocktail Series : The Watermelon Swash

What happens when you make a melon salad and have a bunch of watermelon pulp/juice leftover? Cocktail time! This cocktail is adapted from Mrs. Lilien’s Cocktail Swatchbook – which you should all purchase immediately. This drink is just the boozy, cocktail version of my mint and melon salad.


1 jar watermelon pulp/juice (or 4 cups cubed watermelon)

1/2 cup – 1 cup mint-infused simple syrup

juice from 4 limes

8 mint leaves

1 cup tequila


In a blender, combine watermelon, 1/2 cup simple syrup, lime juice, mint leaves and tequila and blend for a few seconds until combined and frothy. Fill blender to top with ice and blend until smooth. Taste, adding more simple syrup if desired. Fun fact: this drink fizzes naturally. What? How? I don’t know! Just garnish with a mint sprig and DRINK UP.
