I just bought this amazing book entitled MIX SHAKE STIR. After reading through it last night I had to try one of these cocktails ASAP! It includes recipes from several of New York's finest restaurants. Stay tuned, as I know I'll be posting many of these in weeks to come! The author suggests to spruce up this drink by adding a watermelon wedge briefly seared on a hot grill.

Loved this recipe! I added a little extra simple syrup, a watermelon stick, and it was amazing! It is now our go to summer drink for 2015! Thank you for this!
