I discovered this drink last summer, purely by accident. I had a very watery watermelon that I cut into chunks and put into a bowl. When I took it out of the fridge a few hours later, it was 2/3 full with watermelon juice. So I strained the juice into a cup, thew in some watermelon chunks and a few mint sprigs - and added vodka and ice. A friend came by and between the two of us, we must have knocked down at least 3 tall glasses of this cocktail each.
Well, I saw some small watermelons at the Farmer's Market this morning and bought one. When I came home, I was thinking about how lovely this drink would be with gin. So I poured some Bombay gin into the bottom of my glass, added the ice, watermelon chunks, mint sprigs and watermelon juice.
I was right. It's incredible.
1 1/2 thumbs Bombay Gin
1/2 cup watermelon juice
1 mint sprig (approximately 6 leaves)
1/2 cup watermelon chunks
Ice (to taste)
Mix in a 12 ounce glass and serve cold.
