Summer... AF

September 8, 2017

Sometimes you have to fake it 'till you make it, and today I'm faking that summer feeling. I've been seeing such great Ramos Fizz cocktails lately, so I thought I'd do a watermelon riff in a flamingo glass, because can it get more summery than that? Here in Oregon our skies are murky due to an irresponsible turd catching one of the most beautiful parts of our state on fire. This one goes out to my good friends who are coping with natural disasters and other sun-dampeners. The last few weeks have been a doozy. Come summer with me!
Summer AF
2 oz gin
1 oz lime juice
1/2 oz half & half
1/4 small watermelon
Egg white
Q grapefruit tonic water
I made this in my NutriBullet, which is a little gadget that I adore. I'm sure most pro bartenders would kick me out of my bar seat for this travesty, but come at me 😉 Bullet everything but the tonic water. Then add ice and shake manually, vigorously. Top with a bit of foam and tonic mixture. I suspect this didn't massively foam because of the quick evisceration via machine and the high water content of the watermelon, but it was still real tasty. Happy Friday, friends and neighbors!
