The Guatermelon Especial Cocktail Reviews

  • In a word - Delicious, though I used vodka as another reviewer did. I dont enjoy rum. We enjoyed it so much were going to do a brunch for friends and feature this drink

  • We found this to be a bit sweet with rum, so we changed the alcohol to vodka and liked it much more. Too be fair, I didnt have enough fresh lime juice to put the full 1 ounce in each drink...that may have cut the sweetness...so I squeezed 1/4 of a lime into each glass and muddled it with fresh mint from my garden. With my changes, we liked this recipe enough to give it 4 stars. A nice summertime cocktail that assisted us in using up some leftover watermelon.

  • So delicious and refreshing I strained the watermelon before I poured it into the glass. So good

  • This is an excellent summertime drink. Watch out, though; its hard to taste the alcohol I think my shaker is on the small side, so I had a little trouble fitting all of the ingredients. I just didnt completely fill it with ice and it was fine.

  • Perfect cocktail for the summer

  • I did make some changes and it was delish I had left over watermelon and the juice, so I cubed the watermelon and froze it and the juice in ice trays, eliminated the ice and put all in the blender One tray of frozen cubes and 6 cubes of the frozen juice makes 2 large drinks

  • I made these for our 4th of July BBQ for two reasons. I wanted a red drink for the holiday and something fruity. This drink was good but a bit to tart for my taste. I added a little more simple syrup when I made these. My watermelon wasnt very sweet so that may have been the issue.I did strain the pulp as someone suggested but next time I dont think I will do that or I will strain some of it but not all of the pulp. I suspect this drink would also taste good made with other melons.
