Watermelon is one of the most enjoyed fruit during summers. And making a refreshing watermelon mule out of it certainly pampers your taste buds with a heavenly treat. It serves as a perfect blend of freshness, taste, and aroma, altogether.


Mule is the word used for drinks that have ginger beer as a basic ingredient. This is a popular summer drink from Moscow mules that gives a soothing effect, with a strong kick that comes from the Gin.

There are two ways to make a watermelon mule (juice); one is straight-up watermelon juice, whereas the second has an additional twist to it. Let’s check them out;

Watermelon Mule Recipe


  • cup Watermelon Juice.
  • cup Ginger Beer.
  • ¼ cup Vodka.
  • 2 tbsp Lime Juice. (depends on how much citrusy flavor you like with the watermelon taste)
  • Ice Cubes, (depending on how chilled you would like the drink)
  • Lemon. A thinly cut slice for garnishing


Method 1 :

  • Cut the Watermelon into small size cubes (you don’t have to deseed it).
  • Freeze them for a few hours (optional).
  • Put the cubes (frozen or room temperature) in a blender.
  • Blend the cubes until they are puree form.
  • Strain the puree in a fine strainer (you will get half the amount of the cubes, for example, if you had 1 cup of cubes, you would get ½ cup of juice).

Method 2 :

  • This is a long process and involves cooking.
  • Follow Method 1 for juicing process.
  • When the juice is ready, pour it into a saucepan.
  • Turn the heat on.
