Watermelon

Watermelon cocktail ingredient

Watermelon is a lovely gorgeous fruit (a berry, technically!) with an emerald-green outside and lovely pink or red fruit on the inside. It’s a tricky ingredient to use in cocktails, as its watery consistency and mild flavor can easily be overrun by stronger, more concentrated ingredients.

Some recipes here call for muddling the melon in the glass or in a shaker – easy enough – while others call for watermelon juice. Making the juice is easy – just cube up some watermelon, place it in a large measuring glass or bowl, and push down on it with a muddler, your hands, or a spatula to express the juice. Pour it through a strainer to remove the flesh, and it’s ready to use in your drink.

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.
