Xantiiya, a watermelon cocktail

Sip on this watermelon cocktail, courtesy of Coa Agaveria y Cocina. The sweetness from the honey and velvet falernum won’t go unnoticed. The steps are simple while the flavor is anything but. Shake gin, tequila, and those sweeteners in a cocktail tin. Strain into your best glass and garnish with a watermelon piece for the ultimate drink. Enjoy with any meal, though this watermelon cocktail is no doubt best served on a hot summer day to cool down.
