Candy Cane Cocktails
Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 8
It’s Christmas in July and this ironic (to those of us in the northern hemisphere) holiday deserves attention! Keeping with the watermelon appreciation theme, let’s try combining watermelon and Christmas with this unique and unexpected cocktail recipe.
  • 4 cups watermelon puree*
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 box cherry flavored gelatin
  • 8 shots peppermint liqueur
  1. To make the watermelon puree, remove seeds from fresh watermelon and cut into large chunks. Place in a blender and process until smooth and well pureed.
  2. Stir together the watermelon puree, pomegranate juice, and a heaping tablespoon of the cherry gelatin. Chill.
  3. Place some water in a saucer and the remaining dry gelatin in an even layer in another. Dip the rims of 8 champagne glasses in the water and then in the saucer with the gelatin to rim the glasses with the cherry gelatin.
  4. Carefully pour a shot of peppermint liqueur into each glass and then top off the glasses with the watermelon mixture. Serve immediately.
