New Cocktail: The Perrier Crystal Melontini
What’s more refreshing on a hot summer day than a big juicy slice of watermelon? It’s with this in mind that we’ve created the perfect drink to start the month of June off right: The Perrier Crystal Melontini, a fresh and bubbly twist on the classic martini. More than just candy for the eye, this cocktail brings out the natural flavours of the melon without being overly sweet thanks to Crystal Head Vodka’s subtle floral aromas. Simple to make, and sure to impress your guests at your next party.
Blend pieces of watermelon until you have a juice consistency. Run through a sieve to get rid of the pits and purée. Pour 3oz of the juice, 2oz of vodka, 2 teaspoon of watermelon liquor and one teaspoon of simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well, and pour in a martini glass. Top with Perrier and garnish with a slice of watermelon and mint leaves. For an extra wow factor, serve a couple of Perrier Melontinis on a tray with the Crystal Head Vodka bottle.
