National Watermelon (cocktail) Day!

I have to take a break from reporting about Tales to celebrate National Watermelon Day(it’s not actually watermelon cocktail day, but I know why you’re all visiting this site). I bet you’re probably thinking, “Well then what does that have to do with cocktails?”, and I’m glad you asked! I see today as a way to not only celebrate the perfect for summer, refreshing fruit, but to also celebrate a well-loved product of ours here at the Cocktail Culture blog, Hiram Walker Watermelon Schnapps!

Here are some of our favorite recipes using Hiram Walker Watermelon Schnapps!

French Laundry

  • ½ part Elderflower Liqueur
  • ½ part Hiram Walker Watermelon Schnapps
  • 3 parts Brut Champagne

Build in-order in a champagne flute

Watermelon Drop

  • ¾ parts Hiram Walker Watermelon Schnapps
  • ¾ parts ABSOLUT Citron

Layer Citron on top of HW Watermelon. Serve with a lemon.

Watermelon Martini

• 1 ½ parts ABSOLUT Vodka

• 1 part Hiram Walker Watermelon Schnapps

• 2 parts Cranberry Juice

• 1 splash Pineapple Juice

Shake with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

These are just some great watermelon cocktails you can make, and we encourage you to get creative on this joyous National Watermelon Day :) We also suggest you take a look at Hiram Walker’s Facebook page for some more watermelon recipes and drink photos!

Enjoy!
