My Dad used to eat chilled watermelon wedges with salt in the summer time, and this watermelon salty dog cocktail reminds me of that childhood memory. It’s absolutely refreshing and delicious! Try it and let me know how you like it .
Watermelon Salty Dog
You will need:
– 1 cup fresh watermelon juice, I like the little melons for this recipe (pass chunks of watermelon through fine sieve for fresh juice)
– 2 oz tequila
– Juice of 1 lime
– Sea salt for the rim
In a jigger place ice, watermelon juice, tequila and lime juice. Shake until fully combined and chilled, about 1 minute.
Strain into a glass, rim the glass with lime half, and sprinkle the rim with sea salt. It’s okay if some of the salt falls into the glass.
Cheers! xxCocktails Entertaining mixology Recipes : Tags: Cocktail, Cocktail of the Week, Cocktails, entertaining, national watermelon day, recipes, salty dog, summer, summer cocktail, tequila, watermelon
