Watermelon Martini Recipe - Happy hour time!!!

Hi Everyone! How's the weekend going? Hope good. So today i've got this tasty happy hour drink for you. This fruity cocktail is really easy to make.It's watermelon season and taking advantage of the abundance of this tasty fruit won't be a bad idea at all. Okay before the cocktail purists have my head for lunch, i know...this isn't your typical martini. But due to popular culture, drinks served in martini glasses these days are comfortably called martinis :D. Moving forward, So i had fun making the water melon stirrers also and it was really easy . I used bamboo skewers for the body and non-edible beads for tip. Hope you enjoy making this as much as i did. Need alcohol free recipes, check out these mock-tail recipes.
