What better way to celebrate summer (and the upcoming weekend- rumoured to be smokin' hot) than with ice cold in-season watermelon and chilled vodka cocktail - a watermelon vodkatini. Add a handful of raspberries and you're rosy. There's no sieving, shaking, and barely any stirring here, unless you insist.
