watermelon and mint on hand which would go to waste if I left it behind for the week. I ask you, what else was I suppose to do but figure out how to use it all up in a cocktail?
- 4 oz watermelon
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 T simple syrup
- 8 mint leaves and 1 sprig reserved for garnish
- 3 oz tequila (preferably silver)
- splash of soda water
You will want to make one of these before you make it for guests so that you can adjust the proportions to your liking. Less simple syrup is needed if the watermelons are extra sweet, more if they are not quite developed or if your concentration of syrup is light, etc.
