Watermelon Tarragon Cooler

Summer is officially here!  I keep trying to come up with new refreshing summer cocktails and there’s nothing like fresh watermelon, tarragon with maple syrup; mixing all of these ingredients together are pretty amazing!


Well I never thought licorice flavor would go well with watermelon but I get these ideas and just go for it… sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t!  This time WOW pretty incredible combo:)


 Recipe: Makes 1 – 8 oz Cocktails

  • 4 oz Fresh Watermelon Juice
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1/4 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1 oz Maple Syrup
  • 2-4 Sprigs Fresh Tarragon


First; you want to muddle, blend or juice your watermelon.

 Second; prepare your maple tarragon syrup by measuring 2 parts of the maple to 1 part of hot water at fresh tarragon to the syrup mix, soak for 5-6 hours or overnight.

Add vodka, watermelon juice, lemon Juice, maple tarragon syrup and fresh tarragon, shake with ice and pour into an 8oz glass with ice.

 *If you want to make a non-alcoholic version obviously leave out the Vodka and add Pellegrino.
