Prep time: 10 minutes
2oz pink lemonade-flavored vodka
2oz watermelon juice
2 cups fresh cut watermelon
1 tsp sugar
pinch of sea salt
To make watermelon juice:
Muddle watermelon in a large glass measuring cup.
Fine strain juice from the pulp. Discard the pulp.
Add sugar and salt and stir until dissolved.
To create your garnish:
Use a melon baller to create melon balls.
Pat the melon dry.
Place melon in a bowl with fine edible glitter and gently toss until melon is coated and pearly.
Use a vegetable peeler to peel a lemon. Do not break the peel, if possible. Cut and shape a long, thin piece and curl it up. Set aside.
Skewer your melons (we used lollipop sticks) and wrap the lemon peel around the melon to create your galaxy
To make your cocktail:
Combine vodka and watermelon juice in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until well chilled. Fine strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with your galaxy. Enjoy!
