sip sip hooray!

1 1/2 oz Beefeater Gin
1 1/2 oz Watermelon Juice
3/4 oz Lime Juice
3/4 oz Campari
1/2 oz Orgeat (BG Reynolds)
Cracked Salt (1 pinch)

Shake with ice and strain into a glass.
A few Mondays ago, Andrea had bought a small watermelon to make a drink off of the recipe sheet from this year's Tales of the Cocktail Bartender's Breakfast. The drink that required watermelon juice was the Sip Sip Hooray! crafted at San Diego speakeasy The Noble Experiment, and it was the Campari in addition to the orgeat that lured me in to make it. Once it a glass, it offered watermelon and grassy aromas. The watermelon continued on into the sip where it worked well with the lime. And finally, the swallow offered gin, bitter orange, and nutty notes with a watermelon finish.
