In The Kitchen With ABD: Watermelon Gin Fizz

 Let’s Get Fizzy!

Since it’s Friday and all, I thought I would share with you a fun little Summer cocktail recipe that will make the perfect weekend companion! Watermelon is pretty much my favorite fruit, and I will find ways to incorporate it into everything! When I stumbled upon this recipe a few weeks ago, I said “SOLD!” Gin + watermelon.  Could one ask for anything more? 

I hope you enjoy this cocktail, and make sure if you whip it up this weekend to tell us what you think with #cookingwithABD!

On another note, some cocktails are so hard to make, needing rare organic rose bitters and such. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE a fancy craft cocktail, but this recipe is super easy and only takes 4 ingredients, most you probably already have on hand!

The original recipe calls for pureed watermelon, but to be quite honest, I didn’t want to wash that many dishes (ha!), so I muddled it! Feel free to puree, but muddling worked perfectly.

Also, I had ginger brew on hand since our favorite cocktail in the Summer is a Moscow Mule; I think this recipe would taste equally as good with regular ole’ ginger ale! Use what you have.
