Scale

Ingredients

For the cocktail:

  • 2 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
  • 1/2 medium cucumber, peeled, de-seeded and sliced
  • 1012 leaves fresh mint
  • 2 tbsp date syrup
  • 2 1/2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup vodka

For the date syrup:

  • 10 Natural Delights Medjool Dates, pitted and soaked
  • 1 1/2 cups water

Instructions

  1. Place pitted dates in a large bowl. Cover with very hot water and set aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, chop watermelon and cucumber.
  3. To make date syrup, first drain dates. Place dates and 1 1/2 cups clean water in a blender (I used my Nutribullet). Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass jar or Tupperware and set aside.
  4. Place watermelon, cucumber, mint, and 2 tbsp date syrup in blender. Blend. Pour mixture through a fine mesh sieve and discard pulp.
  5. Add lime juice and vodka to strained juice mixture, stirring to combine.
  6. Fill glasses with ice and top with cocktail. Garnish with fresh mint.
