Watermelon Vodka Cooler Recipe

Pick out a great watermelon – make sure it feels heavier than it looks and has a large, butter yellow spot where it was resting and ripening.  Cube the watermelon and throw 3 cups in the blender along with the juice of one lime.

Because you are straining the seeds and pulp after you blend, it does not matter if you buy the seeded or seedless variety.

Fill two glasses with ice and a shot of Midori or other melon liqueur.  I like Midori for its bright green color (and I had some left over for when I made Wildfire Cocktails for the Game of Thrones Finale).

Add your watermelon juice to a pitcher and combine with vodka and triple sec.

Using the back of a spoon, slowly pour Watermelon mixture over the Midori.  Pouring over the spoon will allow the two liquids to layer properly.
