This Spicy Watermelon Cocktail is Sweet, Savoury, and Simple

Watermelon is an iconic summer fruit (though it is also considered a vegetable because of the way it grows). These watermelon cocktails are light and refreshing with a bit of heat. They’re both sweet and savoury, and super simple to make and enjoy.


1 oz of Whiskey
2 oz of Watermelon Juice
1/2 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
½ oz Simple Syrup
3 Basil Leaves
Optional: Spicy Salt (Chipotle or Smoked)


Add all ingredients (not salt) into a shaker with ice and mix. Rim a glass with your favourite spicy salt (if desired) and strain shaker into the glass.

Let the summer drink season begin!
