3 TBS watermelon vodka (recipe follows)
1 tsp granulated sugar
1/4 cup watermelon dice
2 mint leaves
place watermelon, mint, sugar and lime in the bottom of a highball or old fashioned glass. muddle until the lime has been completely juiced, the mint has begun to give off scent, yet the watermelon has not been pulverized. add a few ice cubes and pour the watermelon vodka over. add enough tonic water to fill the glass. give a good stir and serve.
1 1/2 cups watermelon candies (i used these)--but i believe jolly ranchers would work well too
3 cups vodka
place the candies in the bottom of a large jar. add the vodka. let sit in a cool dark place for about 3 days or until the candies are dissolved (may take less time). Use as desired.
