Servings

Makes 2 cocktails

There’s no reason that you can’t get your fruit and veggies in while you indulge in some libations! (Bloody Mary, anyone?) This drink eschews the sticky sweet flavor of other martinis in exchange for the fresh, clean cucumber paired with refreshing watermelon. I use Hendrick’s gin because it’s infused with cucumber and rose and isn’t a juniper gin, like Bombay Sapphire.
