The Melted Brain is the cocktail that announces the official arrival of summer. It is a carefree watermelon cocktail, a thoughtful drink in every sense, both to carry and drink, so be careful and maybe share it with the person you love, or you love partying with. If the two figures coincide, you have found your soul mate.
To make this cocktail in the watermelon, you need extra work. You must first dig with a spoon to extract the pulp, which must be pounded, filtered, and finally shaken in the shaker with the right ingredients.
What are the ingredients of the Melted Brain cocktail?
We tell you immediately what they are: tequila, prosecco, watermelon, ginger, mint, lime, or lemon, and basil.
The cocktail is very aromatic, intense, and alcoholic; nevertheless, it remains sharp and slender, driven by the zesty taste of tequila.
We used a small watermelon, but you can also make it giant with bigger fruit and serve it to quench your guests’ thirst during summer parties and sleepy afternoon gatherings in the parish.
Do not blend the pulp and remove the seeds: a minimum of seriousness is necessary.
