My husband and I are always looking for a good watermelon cocktail for summer. This one is ok - but you never want to shake club soda in a shaker can, so points off for that. The drink was average, sad to say. Not a lot of watermelon flavor, but that is typical of all the watermelon cocktails we’ve tried.

This looks so delicious! I was just telling my husband how I enjoyed a good martini and he argued that he didn't like them much. Perhaps this recipe will change his mind!
