Six Fresh Watermelon Cocktails To Keep Summer Going image 1

Watermelon cocktails shout summer. Here's six of the best drinks using a variety of fresh fruit, watermelon syrup and watermelon liqueur.

The time-saving hack to any watermelon cocktail, and a way to avoid flavourless, out-of-season fruit, is to enjoy the fresh and juicy flavour without all the trouble of cutting up a soccer ball-sized fruit. To do this, you can use MONIN watermelon syrup, which is loaded with those luscious flavours, packaged up in bottle-form.

Jalapeno-infused pisco, Monin watermelon syrup, lime juice and egg white.
We say: With a whole measure of watermelon syrup, you may expect this cocktail to be on the sweet side. Instead, it is beautifully balanced with delicate jalapeno heat.

Fresh watermelon, vodka, Campari, lemon juice, Monin pure cane sugar syrup and orange bitters.
We say: Light, refreshing and all too quaffable. Campari and orange bitters add depth of flavour and, with a full 20ml of sugar, surprisingly balanced.
