Firecracker Cocktail


  • 4 ounces Prairie Cucumber Vodka
  • 4 (1-inch) cubes of seedless watermelon
  • 2 limes, diced
  • 2 ounces simple syrup (Boil 1/4 cup of water and sugar just until sugar dissolves. Add 1/4 cup ice to cool)
  • Lime Rim (equal amounts salt and sugar combined with some fresh grated lime)
  • 2 watermelon slices
  • 2 cucumber slices
  • 2 small mint sprigs

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Combine vodka, watermelon, and lime in a cocktail shaker.  Muddle all ingredients well.  Add simple syrup, fill with ice, cover and shake until ice cold.

Step 2: Rim the glasses with a cut lime and dip in the lime rim mixture.

Step 3: Fill the glasses with ice and pour the ingredients from the shaker into the glasses.

Step 4: Garnish with a watermelon slice, a cucumber slice, and a mint sprig.

*If you do not have cucumber vodka, simply add a couple of slices of cucumber to the watermelon and lime and muddle them together; use a regular vodka of your choosing.
