Take out your Martini Glass, pick up a good book, and enjoy a Delicious Martini with a different twist. Make enough for two, when you want to share it with a special friend. Either way, this is a new twist on the use for watermelon.
This recipe serves one:
1. Place all ingredients in a shaker and shake until very well chilled, about 30 seconds.
2. Strain into a chilled martini glass. A properly shaken Martini will have a very thin layer of ice crystals floating on top after it is strained into the glass.
Shake the Martini long enough and with enough vigor to get the layer of crystals.
This is habit forming, because it is so refreshing and has a different taste than the usual Martini. This contains alcohol. Be careful, don't drink too much!
Things You'll Need:
* 1 1/2 oz. vodka
* ½ ounce lime juice
* ½ ounce Triple Sec
* 6 frozen watermelon cubes (about ½ inch square each)
* ½ shaker of ice
* ½ ounce Chambord
