The Coolest Martini of Summer…

Smooth, succulent, and refreshing, the voluptuous watermelon has officially transformed the martini into a whole new eye-popping, tongue-waving summer spectacle.

2 ounces watermelon juice, or to taste (store-bought or homemade by blending chunks of seedless watermelon until juiced, straining if necessary)

1 1/2 to 2 ounces vodka

2 ounces cranberry juice, or to taste

Splash of pineapple juice

2 watermelon slices and frozen berries, for garnish

In a shaker, combine all the ingredients, except the garnishes, with ice.  Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with two side-by-side watermelon slices and the frozen berries.

YIELD: 1 cocktail
