There is nothing like grilling during the summertime and while we're enjoying the high temps and endless cookouts its nice to relax and cool off with a refreshing cocktail.
Robyn really put me on to grilled cocktails before meeting her I never had one and now I'm addicted! The simple act of grilling the ingredients add a whole new definition to a drink.
I recently made this Watermelon + Cucumber Cosmo, a few days later Robyn posted a photo of grilled watermelon she was prepping for a salad and I knew I had to revamp the drink.
Watermelon and cucumber are incredibly refreshing and while most Cosmos are made with Vodka this one is made with Hendricks Gin, which has a crisper taste in my opinion.
GRILLED WATERMELON + CUCUMBER COSMO
Here's what you'll need to make 1 cocktail:
- 1.5 oz Hendricks gin
- .5 oz lime juice
- 1 oz white cranberry juice
- 1–2 mint leaves
- 3 cucumber slices
- 2–3 grilled watermelon wedges
- .5 oz Triple Sec
In a blender mix the lime juice, 2 cucumber slices and cubed grilled watermelon slices.
In a cocktail shaker add the ingredients along with gin, triple sec, cranberry juice and mint leaves.
Shake for about a minute and strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with the leftover cucumber slice.
