saturday night’s all right for drinking

 

Saturday and you’re ready to party! Whoo hoo!
But you’re broke and can’t go outside and play with the pretty people 😦 Boo!

This is a martini that I tried out about two weekends ago with some ingredients that I already had in the house + one that I needed to go to the store for, so overall it was cheap and it was worth it. I didn’t measure any of this as I’ve been making martini’s for a while, so I pretty much went by eye. I’ll do my best to tell you the measurements but it’s probably best if, after you try it this way, you experiment so that you get the juice/vodka ratio you prefer.

 

Watermelon Martini

1 1/2 jigger of vodka

Watermelon Agua Fresca

Splash of Triple Sec

Ice

Martini Shaker

 

Start by putting your ice in your shaker (I use a Boston shaker), then throw in the vodka (the higher quality you use, the smoother this will be), pour your agua fresca into the shaker until you hit about a centimeter below the rim, throw in a splash of triple sec.

Shake it like a Polaroid picture.

Pour into a chilled martini glass and enjoy.
Simple, easy, and refreshing.  You can also rim this with crushed watermelon jolly ranchers as I did on my second go round. Note: those candies are a pain in the ass to clean off!

 

What are some of your favorite Saturday night specials?
