How To Make a Refreshing Summertime Drink: A Watermelon Martini
2 Ounces Watermelon juice
1½ Ounces Vodka 1/2
1-ounce simple syrup or triple sec
1-2 Tbsp Lime juice

Pour liquefied watermelon into a sieve to filter out pulp. (I poured it through a coffee filter fitted over a canning jar)
Combine juice….. Vodka… Simple syrup…. ( or sugar, honey or agave instead simple syrup)
