The alcoholic beverage company have joined forces with the influencer to create a taste-bud tingling Martini to mark the special day on Thursday (03.08.17).

And Smirnoff have come up with a quick and easy method to make the most of the seeded fruit with the addition of just three other ingredients: 25 ml of Smirnoff vodka, a handful of ice, and a bunch of fresh mint.

Simply slice the one kilogramme of watermelon, making sure to leave a few slices for decoration, blend the fruit with ice and pour in the alcohol with the watermelon liquid.

And for the extra piece de resistance rub fresh mint around the rim of the martini glass, and garnish the drink with a slice of melon and a sprig of the herb.
