Creole Watermelon Martini Recipe


1 ripe watermelon
Chili powder
fresh lime juice,


  1. Cut a 3 x 1-inch triangle of watermelon to use as garnish for each glass.
  2. Place 3/4 of a cup of watermelon in a cocktail shaker, add a dash of chili powder and 1/2 oz lime juice.
  3. Using a muddler or a fork, mash the watermelon mixture to release the juices.
  4. Add vodka and fill shaker with ice. Shake until chilled and strain into a Martini glass.
  5. Sprinkle chilli powder, salt and a dash of lime juice onto the watermelon triangle.
