Sandia

Sandia cocktail with blanco tequila, Aperol, watermelon juice, lemon juice, and ginger syrup

“Sandia” is Spanish for watermelon, and it’s the perfect name for this tequila-watermelon sour from David Valdez at Simbal Restaurant in Los Angeles.

The flavor profile is rounded out with lime juice, ginger syrup, and the bright-bitter magic of Aperol, the friendliest member of the bitter citrus apéritivo family.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a short ice-filled glass. Garnish with melon balls (Simbal soaks theirs in chile juice beforehand) and a mint spring or basil bunch.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
