Serves 4

1/4 watermelon, in pieces

1 cup water

juice from 2 limes

1/2 cup sugar


sliced cucumber


soda water

  1. Start by placing the water melon meat in a blander and whizz until it's a pulp, do this in batches and pour into a sifter that you place over a bowl. Discard the pulp.
  2. In a small saucepan bring water, lime and sugar to the boil and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Cool completely.
  3. Fill 4 mason jars with ice and sliced cucumber.
  4. Fill up 1/2 with the watermelon juice, the rest should be simple syrup, vodka and a splash of soda on top.
  5. Garnish with lemon and cucumber and enjoy.


I like vodka the best, but try with spicy rum or tequila.
