pour me a drink please

in honor of thirsty thursday i'm linking up with kristin!  go say hey, it's her birthday :)

so anyway since this week has been pretty crazy, i decided this link up would be perfect considering a cold martini would be absolutely wonderful right about now.


y'all there's nothing i love more than watermelon, so why not make it into a drink?
check out this watermelon martini recipe.

Ingredients
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
5 cups watermelon, seeds removed
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/4 cups vodka
2 ounces melon liqueur, optional
8 lemon twists, for garnish

Directions

Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan and cook until the sugar has completely dissolved. Let cool.

In a food processor, puree the watermelon flesh. Add a little of the sugar syrup to sweeten, to taste. Pour the pureed watermelon into 2 empty ice cube trays and freeze for at least 4 hours.

In a blender combine the frozen watermelon cubes, more simple syrup, to taste, lemon juice and vodka, melon liqueur and blend until smooth. Pour into 8 frozen martini glasses and garnish with a lemon twist.
