FAQ's

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

How can I make a non-alcoholic version of the Watermelon Fruitini?

To create a non-alcoholic version of the Watermelon Fruitini, you can substitute the vodka with a non-alcoholic spirit or simply omit it altogether.

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What type of vodka works best with the Watermelon Fruitini?

FAQ

Can I use watermelon-flavored syrup instead of fresh watermelon?

Yes, you can use watermelon-flavored syrup as a substitute for fresh watermelon if it's not in season or available. However, be mindful that syrups are sweeter and more concentrated, so you may need to adjust the quantity of sugar syrup to avoid making the drink too sweet. Start with a smaller amount and taste as you go.

How do I properly garnish a Watermelon Fruitini?

A Watermelon Fruitini can be beautifully garnished with a small wedge or ball of fresh watermelon on the rim of the cocktail glass. For an extra touch of elegance, you can also add a mint leaf or a twist of lime peel to enhance its visual appeal and add a subtle aroma.
