A couple of weeks ago I was visiting a friend down in Alicante. The weather was beautiful and the beaches vast, but what was really enjoyable was the abundance of fresh fish, fruit and veg. To make good use of all the glorious ingredients available I got into the routine of knocking up watermelon juice every morning, as snapped here.
Not wanting to let go of my holiday and wanting to raise a glass to a friend of mine, who’s leaving the country soon, I traded out the water in my watermelon juice for vodka to great effect. I love it when a plan comes together!
Cocktail (blended): Half a fresh watermelon sliced and diced, a handful of ice, the juice of a lime and vodka to taste. Watermelon to garnish.
