WATERMELON MARTINIS from Jennifer Cooks
3 cups seedless watermelon, chilled
2 oz Absolut Citron
1 oz Midori Melon liqueur
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 cup ice cubes
watermelon with rind, for garnish
Dice one cup of watermelon into small cubes; set aside. Puree remaining 2 cups of watermelon in a blender and add vodka, melon liqueur, lime juice and ice and blend until smooth. Pour 6 oz martini into each martini glass, add 1/4 cup remaining watermelon into each glass and garnish with watermelon slices.
* For a sweeter martini or if your watermelon isn’t very sweet, add 1 or 2 packets of Splenda, to taste.
* For those who don’t drink alcohol, add ice cubes and replace alcohol with a splash of orange or cranberry.
