Watermelon Cocktail

IMG_0751Dissertation finished… now what? It is quite scary to return to the labour market and look for a new job… But before that took a week off to enjoy sunny Portugal!

In Bristol, the winter is clearly coming… In Portugal I found a lovely sun and 32ºC! This week I had all grilled fish meals and a lot of refreshing drinks.


Watermelon Cocktail (serves 4)

  • 3 thick slices of watermelon
  • 2 bags of ice cubes
  • 1 orange
  • 200 ml of vodka
  • mint
  1. Peel the watermelon making sure you remove the white part near the rid. Cut the watermelon into pieces and remove the seeds. IMG_0735
  2. In a blender mix the watermelon and half of the ice until you get a nice liquid pulp.IMG_0737
  3. Add the orange juice and the vodka and stir well. For a non-alcohol refreshment just leave the vodka out.
  4. Crunch the rest of the ice. Fill the bottom of the glasses with the crunched ice. Pour the watermelon mix on top of the ice until you fill the glasses.IMG_0746
  5. Decorate with some mint leaves. IMG_0753
