Sweet, Fruity, Refreshing, Zesty
1 cup fresh watermelon chunks
45ml MOUNTAIN Gin
15ml lime juice
15ml sugar syrup
a handful ice cubes, for shaking
salt, for the rim
soda water, to top up
a wedge of watermelon, to serve
chilled highball glass
Put some salt in a small dish and upturn the glass to coat the rim in the salt.
Blend the fresh watermelon chunks in a blender until you have a smooth puree. Strain the puree to remove any solids, and collect 60ml of the juice in a cocktail shaker.
Add the MOUNTAIN Gin, lime juice, sugar syrup, and a handful of ice cubes to the cocktail shaker with the watermelon juice. Shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds to chill the mixture.
Fill the glass with ice cubes, and strain the cocktail mixture into the glass. Top up with soda water and garnish with a wedge of watermelon.
This delightful concoction combines the luscious sweetness of fresh watermelon with the botanical notes of gin and a zesty hint of lime. With its beautiful pink hue and effervescent sparkle, the Watermelon Gin Fizz is the perfect companion for warm, sunny days or any occasion that calls for a burst of fruity bliss. So sit back, relax, and let the tantalising flavours of this gin cocktail transport you to a tropical oasis. Cheers to the ultimate summer indulgence!
