s Wife cocktail with watermelon

A bright mix of watermelon, gin, Aperol, lemon juice, and a splash of club soda, this cocktail from Stella Rosa Pizza Bar in Santa Monica sidesteps the normal pitfalls of watermelon-based cocktails, which tend to veer to the overly sweet. Well-balanced and pleasantly effervescent, the mild astringency of the Aperol tugs back at the melon’s sweetness and reignites the gin, elevating this brightly-hued cocktail to the heights of sophistication.

Here is the Merchant’s Wife cocktail recipe:

Ingredients:

2 2″x1″ chunks fresh watermelon, plus wedges to garnish

¾ oz. simple syrup

1 oz. gin

¾ oz. Aperol

¾ oz. lemon juice

1 oz. club soda

Preparation:

Muddle the watermelon chunks and simple syrup together in a cocktail shaker. Add the remaining ingredients, fill shaker with ice, and shake vigorously. Strain over into a wine glass filled with crushed ice and serve garnished with a wedge of watermelon.
