There’s nothing quite like the taste of watermelon to give you that holiday feeling. So, in celebration of National Water Melon day on the 3rd of August, we’d thought we’d share this delicious little number with you.


210g of fresh watermelon

56ml ( 1/4 cups) of watermelon schnapps

56ml ( 1/4 cups) of vodka

2 table spoons of syrup (2 parts sugar, 1 part water)

the juice of 1 lime

salt and sugar


  1. Combine a little sugar and salt in a small bowl. Transfer to a shallow plate. Moisten the rims of your glasses with a little piece of watermelon, and dip them into the mixture. Not only does this look incredibly professional but it’ll also taste amazing; set aside.
  2. Grab your cocktail shaker ( a tall glass will do) and pour in the watermelon, schnapps, vodka, syrup and lime juice.
  3. Pop in a couple of ice cubes and shake until the outside of the shaker starts to frost.
  4. Strain into glasses, sit back, imagine your toes in the sand & enjoy!MELONS
