What’s better than a perfect, sweet watermelon in a cup? Ginger gives this cocktail such a nice kick!

1 seedless watermelon

2 knuckles of ginger, peeled

The juice of 3 limes

2 ounces of vodka per cocktail

Blend the watermelon and fine strain. Set aside.

Blend the lime juice and peeled ginger. Fine strain into the watermelon juice. (Side note: this juice can be prepared a day in advance.)

This juice is wonderful without the booze, but it’s great with vodka too!

Add ice and vodka to a glass. Top with fresca. Stir.
