The Watermelon Gin Rickey ~ a super refreshing summer cocktail made with fresh juicy watermelon.

Total time

0 minutes




  • 2 Coriander seeds
  • 2 oz (1/4 cup) Bombay Sapphire Gin
  • 2 oz (1.25l) fish stock (1/4 cup) fresh watermelon juice (directions below)
  • ½ oz fresh squeezed lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • club soda or sparkling water to top up
  • for garnish
  • mint leaves
  • watermelon spear


  1. To make the watermelon juice put 1 lb of roughly chopped watermelon (this will be approximately half of a mini watermelon) into a blender or food processor. Blend until pureed. Pour the puree through a sieve, and let sit in the refrigerator to drain. Don't push the pulp through, just let it drain. It will yield about 1 1/2 cups of juice.
  2. Put the coriander seeds at the bottom of a cocktail shaker and crush lightly,
  3. Add the gin, lime juice and 1/4 cup of the watermelon juice. Add ice and shake.
  4. Pour over fresh ice and top up the glass with club soda or sparkling water.
  5. Garnish with mint and a watermelon spear.
