Spicy watermelon cocktail

Watermelon Cocktail

Adding a little heat to an otherwise refreshing cocktail is always a good idea. And with watermelon—a quintessentially summer flavor—the combination is irresistible. 


This whiskey cocktail marries watermelon juice with traditional Mexican flavors—citrus, chile, and salt—for a surprising yet delicious combination.


Spicy salt
2 oz Johnnie Walker Black Label
2 oz fresh watermelon juice
3⁄4 oz fresh lemon juice
3⁄4 oz simple syrup
4 basil leaves
How to make it 

Rim an old-fashioned glass with spicy salt (chipotle flavor is ideal). Add ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and shake. Strain into glass and serve.
