No fruit is more associated with summer than watermelon. So when the bartenders at Martorano’s inside Paris Las Vegas crafted this sweet gem, it was long overdue. The Watermelon Water Ice Martini blends Absolut Vodka, Marie Brizard Watermelon No. 18 liqueur, sour mix and simple syrup.

This classic cocktail is made with premium ingredients and served in a copper coupe. It’s finished with hand-stuffed blue-cheese olives. And while sipping your Absolut Elyx Martini, you’ll be glad to know: for each one sold, two gallons of clean drinking water are donated to someone in need through Water for People.
