End of Summer Martini’s

Well, here we are…summer is just almost over. We’ve got one last weekend to pack in the fun. So let’s do just that. Here are some fun and festive martini recipes to celebrate this holiday weekend:

End of Summer Martini’s

Watermelon Martini

Throw a few cups of watermelon in the blender, the juice of one lime, and enough vodka to make you smile.  Blend it all up and throw either a wedge of watermelon on the side of a glass or cut out some cute mini watermelon stars and put them on a toothpick.  It takes about 47 seconds to make a batch.

They’re even better frozen to slush stage.

To make a non-alcoholic version for the kiddos, add a little water or juice in place of the vodka.
