Welcome to my Liquid Kitchen!
I Tweeted this before but never included a recipe. Plus, there is an early harvest of heirloom watermelons in California. So I figure it’s been 80+ degrees so why not have some summer melon?
1.5 oz Mezcal El Silencio Espadin
.5 oz Combier Liqueur D’Orange
.75 oz Fresh squeezed Lime
.25 oz Simple Syrup
3-4 Watermelon Balls, dependent on the sweetness of your melon and the size of your baller (not to mention your shot-caller)
Muddle the watermelon with the simple syrup. Add all other ingredients, then add ice and shake vigorously for a slow count of ten. You want this one really cold, really aerated! As a Texas girl, I think a salt rim is a must for this one, because we would sprinkle salt on watermelon when I was a kid. And then do that cute garnish I have in the photo below.
