We’re highlighting an often overlooked summer fruit – and one that’s incredibly easy to use in your cocktail program.
Tips & Techniques for Using Melon on your Menu:
- Juice them (juicer or blender)
- Make a syrup by macerating the melon with sugar

Liking the sound of that non-alcoholic Watermelon Cooler drink? Here’s the recipe!
The Smoky Summer Nights cocktail is the drink we talked about with Mezcal and Watermelon
