Shot of the Week: The Sunburn




It's almost too easy. (Dustin Dooling)

It’s summer time in south Texas and not even SPF 1000 can protect you. Whether you’re tubing down the river, carving it up on the lake or just lounging by the pool, there is no way to escape the effects of el sol.

This week’s shot is perfect for two reasons:

  1. Its got the refreshing burst of flavor that only watermelon can provide, while taking all the rubbing alcohol flavor out of your vodka.
  2. It’s a reminder to you just how dangerous the rays of the sun can be.

So drink up, stay safe and remember the sunscreen this summer.

1 ¼ ounce vodka

¾ ounce watermelon pucker

Shake with ice and strain into shot glass.
