Late-Summer Sipper

Ingredients

⅓ cup diced watermelon

¼ ounce honey

1 pod cardamom

2 ounces Uncle Val’s Gin

Champagne (or bubbly of your choice)

Directions

This refreshing cocktail, inspired by both a Bellini and a French 75, is from Snackbar’s head bartender, Alex von Hardberger.
  1. Muddle watermelon with honey and cardamom.
  2. Add gin and shake with ice. Strain into a flute and top with your favorite bubbly (we use Prosecco).
