Perfect for summer, watermelon caipiroska is a vodka-based long drink perfect to serve after dinner or as an aperitif.

Summer brings with it lots of fresh and sweet fruit like watermelon. We wanted to make it the protagonist of a sweet drink perfect both as an aperitif and after party : the watermelon caipiroska.

This watermelon cocktail can also be prepared in a non-alcoholic version so as to make it suitable for those who prefer to avoid spirits or for children. Let's see all the steps to prepare this fresh drink.
