15 Refreshing Watermelon Vodka Recipes

From vodka punches to lemon-based drinks, here are 15 of the best watermelon vodka recipes to keep your spirits refreshed and your thirst quenched!

Watermelon vodka cocktails make a delicious, refreshing, and invigorating drink. 

Aside from its enticing scent, its brilliant pink hue is another selling point. 

Typically, watermelons are in season during the summer; however, this varies from state to state. 

The best part about drinks flavored with this delicious fruit is that you can use it whenever you choose. 

Although watermelon can be enjoyed in its edible form, I believe it is best utilized in the form of vodka or a cocktail.

And yes, you can adjust the amount of vodka to suit your preference; the key is to experiment and have fun! 

Keep this in mind, and you’ll always be prepared with a refreshing watermelon vodka recipe, suitable for hot summer days and even low-key picnics with friends.

A long weekend and a backyard barbecue with friends are the perfect way to usher in summer or celebrate any occasion, especially when paired with a tasty vodka recipe.

This refreshing Watermelon Mint Agua Fresca Punch is summertime in a glass.

Simple to make, it features watermelon vodka and other fresh ingredients.
