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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
