ITL's Watermelon Negroni
A handful of watermelon cubes
A mint sprig
25ml In The Loop Semi-sweet red vermouth
Cut off a slice of watermelon, peel and dice it and and add to a shaker with the mint. Muddle awhile. Now add Gin, Vermouth and Campari and shake - no particular need for ice cubes at this point, you just want to get all the juice out of that watermelon and the freshness from the mint. Fine-strain (through a sieve) into a tumbler absolutely full with ice cubes and stir to ensure maximum chill. Garnish with mint and watermelon
A couple of Watermelon Negroni pointers:
For even more refreshment, serve over crushed ice. Or even liquidised into a sort of negroni slushie.
Basically its the perfect summery cocktail!
