Watermelon is just the fruit of summer, and you know it.  I recently tested out this delicious watermelon martini recipe from Russian Standard Vodka and I’m completely obsessed.


  • 2 oz. Russian Standard Original
  • 2 oz. fresh watermelon juice
  • ¼ oz. simple syrup
  • 1 slice of watermelon

Shake with ice and strain into chilled coupe. Garnish with fresh watermelon.

You guys know that I don’t do a ton of brand contest promotion on here but, every once in awhile, a brand contest comes along that is just AWESOME.  And hi- the brand is offering an opportunity to any entrepreneur (in ANY industry) the chance to win $10,000 to fuel their business/idea!  HELLO, everyone in Los Angeles?

Incredible Pursuits (the contest name) is designed to give candidates the opportunity to enter the contest by creating a profile and to garner support from their friends and local communities. The voting process begins immediately and continues through August 9th.  As home to the voting process throughout the search, users will be able to review their fellow peer’s submissions and vote up to five times per day which will give frequent voters a chance to win a set of four of the brand’s signature Moscow Mule copper mugs.  It’s good stuff, people.  Enter away!
