1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1 chunk Watermelon (~1 oz)
Shake with ice and double strain into a wine glass. Top off with dry sparkling wine (~3 oz Brut Dargent Blanc de Blanc) and garnish with a small mint leaf.
On Sunday night, Andrea and I headed over to Green Street where Derric Crothers was tending bar. Since it was summer, I figured it was a good time to order the seasonal Kolb's Gem which contains fresh watermelon. The drink was named after a watermelon cultivar developed in the 1880's that became famous for growing giant, exhibition-quality melons; however, I do not believe that Green Street purchases such large, late season specimens to make their drink.
