Recreating MALIBU FARM's Watermelon Cocktail
We're taking a mental trip to one of our favorite stops on the West Coast: Malibu Farm, by recreating their deliciously simple Watermelon Cocktail at home.
We found a recipe via 7x7 that perfectly replicates the Farm's version, so whether you're hosting a social distancing backyard bash, or having a happy hour at the beach, you can blow your friends away with this super yummy, low-cal cocktail.
What you need:
- 5 sprigs of mint
- 1/4 oz. organic agave nectar (or to taste)
- 1 1/2 oz. watermelon juice*
- 1 oz. fresh lemon juice
- 2 oz. Square One Cucumber vodka
Remove leaves from all but one sprig of mint, reserving that sprig for garnish. Place mint leaves and agave nectar in a cocktail shaker and muddle for 15 seconds. Add ice, watermelon juice, lemon juice and vodka and shake for 15 seconds. Strain the drink into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the remaining mint sprig.
* Watermelon juice - Take one cup of cut watermelon and place in blender. Blend on high until pureed. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain mixture into a glass or bowl. Discard remaining solids from strainer. Will yield enough juice for 4 cocktails.
And voila! Enjoy & drink responsibly.
