Honeysuckle Watermelon Cocktail


This delicious and refreshing cocktail is a combination of fresh watermelon and honeysuckle vodka. It’s a match made in heaven. The sweet flavor of summer watermelon combines magnificently with honeysuckle.

If you grew up in the south, you no doubt have memories of picking the trumpet-shaped honeysuckle flowers from the vine, pulling out the stamen, and touching the end of it to your tongue to capture that extra sweet drop of nectar. With Honeysuckle Vodka you can add that sweet floral flavor to any cocktail.

If you go to a well-stocked liquor store in the south, you should be able to find Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka which is made in Mississippi. It has a slight sweetness to it and it goes well with fruity and citrusy flavors.

This Honeysuckle Watermelon Cocktail also has lemon-lime soda for a little carbonation and fresh lime juice plus Triple Sec. If you want a stiffer drink, add extra vodka.

It’s a summer cocktail that’s perfect for sipping on a rocking chair or a front porch swing. So sweet and refreshing!
