Delicious Beach Drinks


HONEYSUCKLE LEMON DROP MARTINI
This recipe is from my cousin Susannah. She whipped these up for us last year at the beach and now she makes them every time we are together.  So delicious! 

2 oz. Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka
juice from a large lemon
large splash of Simple Syrup
Put all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously.  Serve in a martini glass with a lightly sugared rim.
This makes one cocktail.

I am always trying out new kinds of Mojitos.  They are so tasty and refreshing but I don't usually like them in restaurants because they tend to be overly sweet and artificial tasting.  This one ends up being the most beautiful shade of pink also!


WATERMELON-COCONUT MOJITOS

a few cubes of fresh watermelon
1/4 cup watermelon juice (pureed watermelon strained through mesh strainer)
4-6 mint leaves, torn in half
juice of 2 limes
1 tbsp of cream of coconut
splash of simple syrup, optional
1/4 cup Malibu Coconut Rum
1/8 cup Light Rum
Club soda
Balls of watermelon, for garnish (optional)
Muddle watermelon, mint, lime juice and cream of coconut in glass.  Add watermelon juice, both rums and simple syrup. Stir well.  Add crushed ice. Top with club soda and stir once again.
