- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup kosher salt
- 6 oz fresh watermelon juice (I used a seedless watermelon so mixed it in my food processor and then strained it through a metal strainer).
- 2 & 1/2 oz good vodka
- 2 & 1/2 oz Limoncello or orange liqueur
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- Watermelon wedges for garnish
Chill 2-3 glasses in your fridge or freezer 10 minutes before making the cocktail. Combine the sugar and salt and spread it on a flat bread plate. Dampen the rim of your glass with water or lime juice and dip it in the sugar/salt mixture. (Save the leftover mixture for another occasion). Combine the watermelon juice, vodka, liqueur and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 6-8 times. Strain and pour the mixture into the prepared glasses and garnish with a watermelon wedge.
