The Watermelon Crawl Martini

If you aren’t into country music, you may not be familiar with the song, “The Watermelon Crawl.”

Too many martinis of any kind, and that is JUST what will happen!  You’ll end up crawling!  I don’t make my martinis very strong.  I don’t want to take a chance that anyone will have an issue on my watch!  These look pretty on a summer evening, and go down very smoothly!

Watermelon Crawl Martini Recipe

2 – 3 Parts Fresh Watermelon Juice

3 parts Watermelon Vodka (I like to store my vodka in the freezer before using)

1 part Triple Sec

1 part Malibu Rum (Chill in Freezer)

2 parts pink lemonade

***  Watermelon Juice 0r Watermelon Puree (Personally, I simply puree the watermelon in a blender). A neighbor of mine found watermelon juice at Costco, which would also work well.)

Put ice into martini shaker, then add ingredients.  Shake and pour into martini glasses.  Garnish with a small watermelon wedge, or strawberries.

You may sugar the rim before serving if you desire.  I add  red food coloring to the sugar, to make it pink.

This drink can also be made in pitchers, and served in tall glasses or mason jars over ice for a more casual event such as a picnic.

It is refreshing and delicious, I must say!

Here I am enjoying The Watermelon Crawl Martini at our June Bunko Game! We had a picnic theme, so what could be better? Notice my special “queen” martini glass? Also, my necklace says “The Queen of Damn Near Everything”- proving, once again, that I AM!
