compost cocktail: watermelon gin & tonic

Summer isn’t quite over yet! Watermelons are one of those things that I always have a hard time eating the WHOLE thing. Unless I’m brining it to a picnic or party, half will just sit in the fridge and get a little mushy. I started making watermelon water to use it up instead of tossing, which is so refreshing! So I thought, why not add a little gin? Here is a super simple and refreshing way to end your summer by enjoying one of the best (IMO) summer fruits in a fun compost cocktail!

  • 1 cup watermelon
  • 4oz tonic or sparkling water
  • juice 1/2 lime
  • 1 dropper of bitters or a few shakes

Blend all ingredients till smooth and pour over ice. You can even strain it but I personally like the added texture!
