Minty Watermelon Surfer

Minty Watermelon Surfer

Get on your surf board and let this watermelon splash you!

This is a fun, summery drink, made with one of my favorite summer fruits, watermelon! For this recipe, I use a watermelon into two different ways — juiced and cubed. I let the cubed watermelon be soaked up for a while so that when you pop in these spiked up watermelon cubes, they will give you an irresistibly refreshing burst.

It’s a simple, fun drink, perfect for the 4th of July and all summer long!

Total Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 1 large pitcher


  • 1 watermelon

  • 1 bunch mint

  • 1 1/2 cup vodka

  • 3 limes, juiced

  • Sparkling water or club soda to top it off


  1. Cut the half of a whole watermelon. Scoop out the meat of the halved watermelon into a blender. Blend it until it’s juiced. Cube the other half of watermelon. Put it aside.

  2. In a large pitcher, muddle mint first. Add ice and pour vodka, watermelon juice, lime juice, and stir.

  3. Add chunks of cubed watermelon to the pitcher and mix it all together.

  4. Pour the drink into an iced glass, and finish it off with more fresh mint and a little bit of sparkling water. Finish with a bottle of sparkling water.
