Who can forget Baby’s tongue-tied “I carried a watermelon” line upon first meeting Swayze’s Johnny in Dirty Dancing? In honor of those two having the time of their lives, enjoy this watermelon-kicked vodka and lime cocktail. The sugar or simple syrup is optional; add if you prefer a sweeter drink.
Serves | 2 |
- 2 cups watermelon chunks (reserve as much resulting juice as you can)
- ¼ cup lime juice
- sugar or simple syrup, to taste
- ¾ cup vodka
| Preparation | In a blender, add watermelon chunks and juice and pulse until smooth. Add lime juice and continue to pulse. Taste, and add sugar or simple syrup to taste if you want a sweeter drink. Add vodka, pulse well to mix, then strain into two tall glasses filled with ice.
