Watermelon Squeeze Cocktail
The Watermelon Squeeze … Colorful, Refreshing, Sneaky, Sneaky, Sneaky

In honor of National Watermelon Day (apparently there’s a day for everything), here is an exquisitely refreshing melon-based cocktail that is dangerously easy to consume. You have been warned.


  • 4 ounces freshly pureed and strained watermelon juice
  • 1.5 ounces vodka
  • 1.5 ounces triple sec
  • Juice of 1/2 medium lime
  • Seltzer water to taste


  • Stir ingredients together in an iced cocktail shaker for 30 seconds
  • Strain into an iced mason jar
  • For the garnish, use a toothpick to hold together one lime wedge and one maraschino cherry (from the side, it resembles a tiny watermelon)
  • Top with seltzer if desired
