This super-refreshing cocktail combines gin with juicy watermelon, tart lime, and fragrant mint. Perfect for sipping on the deck on a warm evening while grilling!


  • Few mint leaves
  • 2 oz gin
  • 2 oz watermelon juice
  • 0.5 oz lime juice

  1. Juice your watermelon. If you don't have a juicer, just put it in the blender and then strain it through a fine-mesh sieve.
  2. Put a few mint leaves in a cocktail shaker and muddle them gently so that they release their fragrant oils.
  3. Add some ice, then the gin, watermelon juice, lime juice, and simple syrup.
  4. Give it all a good shake.
  5. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish.
