Kalkan Gem-Cocktail

Kalkan Gem cocktail! Was the cocktail of choice on a rare sunny Monday evening, this cocktail was designed by some lovely ladies who were staying in Kalkan and had lots of watermelon. They decided to crush the watermelon and mix with crushed ice, Malibu, Vodka and Peach Snaps definitely shaken not stirred.

It was absolutely delicious and what a great name for it. Having visited Kalkan in Turkey I can guarantee this cocktail is perfect for the location and many more will be drunk in Kalkan or in the UK.

The lovely ladies of the NWI group (Not the WI) group made their own cocktails which was great fun and not too messy!!! x

How to make the above cocktail, you will need the following ingredients/equipment.
