Watermelon Lemonade Beer Cocktail

I hosted a bachelorette party a few weeks ago and made this Raspberry Beer Cocktail and it was out of this world. I knew I wanted to re-create it into more of a summertime cocktail with {mostly} fresh ingredients for barbecues and summer parties.

You can use either regular vodka or a homemade cucumber infused vodka. 

Doesn’t homemade cucumber vodka sound so much yummier? You might even want to add more of this vodka and less beer so you can taste a bit more of the cucumber.

To make the cucumber vodka all you need to do is combine vodka and peeled, seeded and diced cucumber in a jar for at least three days in the fridge. Shake once in awhile. When you are ready to use it, strain the vodka.

Watermelon Lemonade Beer Cocktail

  • 1 small seedless watermelon {4 cups watermelon juice plus watermelon for garnish}
  • 4 bottles of Corona
  • 1/2 cup cucumber vodka (or regular)
  • 1 container frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed

First, cut the watermelon into pieces. {Reserve some watermelon if you’d like to use it as a garnish. Cut up small watermelon squares and place on skewers and freeze!} Transfer the watermelon to a blender and blend until it is liquid. Then, strain the blended watermelon over a bowl to catch the liquid. Repeat the process until you have 4 cups of watermelon juice.

In a large pitcher combine all of the ingredients. If you would like to make this ahead of time, wait until you are ready to serve to pour in the Corona.

Serve with the frozen watermelon skewers. Enjoy!

    This sounds wonderful, Emily, but I don’t understand where the raspberry comes in. (I actually REALLY dislike beer and would NEVER use it in a cocktail.)

  2. THis looks fabulous and combines all my favorite things, infused vodka, watermelon and beautiful pictures of a great cocktail! Well done!

  3. You certainly intrigued me with this recipe. Now I’m dying to try a batch.

  4. Those recipes sound and look wonderful! I like that you combined them. I’ll have to give these a try this summer!

  5. Looks and sounds very refreshing! I like the idea of the cucumber infused vodka.
