Chef's Notes

Cook's Note; To make watermelon juice, process chunks of seedless watermelon in your blender and then strain through cheesecloth; Make your own simple syrup with our recipe!


  1. One of the best cocktail recipes I've ever made. The fresh watermelon gives the drink exceptional flavor. I did make a margarita version of this recipe by substituting a good tequila for the vodka and triple sec for the watermelon schnapps. To me my version leaves the fresh watermelon taste more apparent. I did try - Read more ...
  2. Love it! The only thing I changed was that I used melon flavored rum instead of schnapps since that was all I had. I used my juicer to get the melon juice. Yummy!
  3. EXCELLENT!!! I didn't have watermelon schnapps but I did have Midori melon liquor. Very tasty this way. I then tried with peach schnapps which was also very good. Hard to pick a favorite. I may start buying watermelons just to have this drink:)
  4. I can't quite make up my mind about this one. It wasn't great and it wasn't bad. Since I didn't think it was great it was way to much work to make watermelon juice so I won't be making again.
  5. This was better than I thought it would be.. I pureed some watermelon in the frap maker and then added just a bit of sugar(we like things sweet)..then used watermelon flavored vodka and watermelon pucker which next time I don't think I will use the pucker. Overall my guests really liked and it was a - Read more ...
  6. I do not have a juicer or food processer so as I cut the watermelon up I saved the rind with a bit extra watermelon not cut off it. Then I used the back of a spoon and smooshed the watermelon left on the rind as the liquid dripped off into a bowl. Then I - Read more ...
  7. This was a winner! I served this at a small BBQ with my husband and two of his friends all beer-drinking Army Captains. My husband is not a watermelon fan so he didn't care for it but the other two guys (who had been munching watermelon slices) LOVED it. I had to practically beg them - Read more ...
  8. So yummy! I had a big bowl of watermelon in the fridge and noticed all of the juice collecting in the bottom. I figured there must be a drink using watermelon juice and here it is! I didn't have watermelon schnapps so I used peach schnapps instead. The watermelon flavor was still very prominent.
  9. One of the most delicious drinks you will ever try. I used the "luscious" watermelon Schnapps not the Pucker. This was incredible. Watch out because they go down WAY too easily and are stronger than you think. You may actually want to weaken them a bit because of this. Definitely rim the glasses with the - Read more ...
