RECIPE: Watermelon Cocktail

We love watermelon cocktails—they’re a great way to take advantage of watermelon season. Here’s a recipe that was part of our National Tequila Day celebration yesterday.

The recipe for a Watermelon Fizz was created by Keith Dusko, mixologist at Haru Sushi, which has restaurants in New York City, Boston and Philadelphia.

A fizz is a cocktail or soft drink with soda water (club soda), which creates the fizz.


Ingredients For One Drink

  • 3 ounces fresh watermelon, de-seeded and cut into small cubes
  • 5 cilantro leaves, torn in halves
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 1 ounce blanco (silver) tequila
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce soda water
  • Squeeze of lime
  • Garnish: Watermelon triangle on a bamboo or cocktail skewer

    1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle watermelon with cilantro.
    2. Add simple syrup, tequila and ice. Shake vigorously, and pour all contents into a rocks glass.
    3. Garnish with a piece of watermelon on a bamboo spike.

    For an alcohol-free drink, substitute Sundia watermelon juice (or purée de-seeded watermelon cubes).
