recipe: the watermelon picnic cocktail

Continuing on with our midsummer cocktail series, I give you a refreshing drink that combines three words that truly embody fun in the sun – watermelon, picnic, cocktail. Absolutely perfect for the hot weekend ahead!

HOW TO: The Watermelon Picnic Cocktail

You will need:
2 Parts Kanon Vodka
2 Parts Watermelon Chunks
2 Parts Lemon Lime Soda
1/2 Part Lemon Juice
1/2 part Simple Syrup (easy recipe here)

1. Chop watermelon and muddle in a mixing tin along with lemon juice and simple syrup, add Kanon, shake it like a polaroid picture.

2. Strain into a glass over ice, top with lemon lime soda, garnish with a slice of watermelon. Enjoy!
