  • 1/2 cup cubed watermelon
  • 2 mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 4 oz vodka
  • ice
  • 1-2 cups ginger beer
  • additional watermelon cubes and mint leaves for garnish, optional


  • Using a fine mesh strainer, place half of the watermelon chunks in the stainer over your first mug and carefully but firmly mash with the back of a spoon or other firm utensil, pushing the juice into the mug, but not the flesh of the watermelon. (Alternately, you can puree the watermelon in a blender of food processor and the strain into the mugs.) Repeat process with the remaining watermelon into the second mug.
  • Add half of the mint to each of the mugs (you can muddle the mint leaves if you like, or just leave them loose in there.)
  • Add 1 tablespoon of lime juice and 2 ounces of vodka to each mug, and then fill mugs half-way with ice.
  • Fill mugs with ginger beer (about 1/2 cup, but may be more or less depending on the size of your mug.)
  • Garnish with watermelon and mint on mini skewers, a cute straw, and enjoy!
