Yes, another cocktail. Hey what can I say,  I love new and refreshing cocktails on a hot summer day, on a cruise, in the Caribbean…Anywhere really! And anyone who has cruised on Carnival knows all about the Alchemy Bar! It’s a great bar, if you can get a seat or place at the counter! Always popular. They have a list of drinks they’ll make but they like to be creative too. So be adventurous if you dare!

This is a simple cocktail that takes no time at all to make. The recipes call for specific brands of Vodka but just use whatever you like. No judgement here. I added the video from Carnival Cruise Lines at the bottom.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 oz Belvedere vodka (or your favorite vodka)
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz Monin watermelon syrup (or other brand if you can find it)
  • 2 cucumber wheels
  • 3/4 oz orange juice

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Drop the cucumber wheels into an empty pint glass (or cocktail shaker). Muddle those wheels.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Add ice, then cover it to prepare for shaking.
  3. Shake it for five seconds or so, then strain with a fine strainer if possible into a chilled glass. 
  4. Garnish with a cucumber wheel on the glass!

Serves 1
