A new watermelon cocktail? Agin?

Are you loco, my friend?

Yes, we have another lovely and glorious cocktail made with watermelon for you. A fruit that pairs well with both gin and tequila, but since we’re in the midst of summer, we thought of a non-alcoholic aperitif to sip at all hours. Without the weight of alcohol.

Serve it as a welcome drink in the late afternoon, preparing it in a carafe and possibly adding a few extra lime wedges to add depth of flavor.

Watermelon juice serves as the base for the cocktail, which also includes orange blossom extract, a drop of cucumber-flavored syrup, lime, and a few cumin pods.

That’s all you need to make a tasty non-alcoholic aperitif with a thousand scents and a freshness that will quench your thirst even in these scorching temperatures.

Ingredients

  • 1 slice of watermelon
  • 1/2 lime
  • 2 grams of ginger
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 1 cl of cucumber flavored sugar syrup
  • 2 drops of orange blossom water

Procedure

Remove the peel and seeds from a small piece of watermelon (80 grams is plenty). Put the watermelon in a shaker with the lime juice, ginger, cardamom pods, and cucumber-flavored syrup.

Mash everything with a pestle until it’s reduced to a puree, then strain through a fine sieve and add a few drops of orange blossom.

Fill with ice, shake for 10 seconds, and strain through a strainer into a cup.

You can make a thick, aromatic, and thirst-quenching non-alcoholic aperitif to serve as a welcome drink for your guests with little effort. They will not be disappointed by the lack of distillates and liqueurs.

If you want to try the alcoholic cocktail version, just add 4 cl of gin and you’ll be all set. If the gin is too strong, add 6 cl of Champagne.

As previously stated, if you need to make a non-alcoholic aperitif for a large group of people for parties or summer barbecues, dilute it with soda and add slices of lime and watermelon.
