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.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
