Cocktail Recipes

  • The Mocktail

    4 oz watermelon juice
    3 oz simple syrup
    1 oz  lime juice
    (1 large serving)

    Fill a tall glass with ice. Measure ingredients into the glass. Top off with sparkling water.

    For a large batch, think of the recipe in terms of parts, and substitute for a larger measurement.

    For example -
    4 cups
    3 cups
    1 cup

    Fill a large pitcher with ice, measure ingredients in, and top off with entire 12oz can or bottle of sparkling water.

  • Instant Gratification Cocktail

    2 oz watermelon juice
    1.25 oz mezcal
    .75 oz simple syrup
    .50 oz lime juice

    Measure ingredients into a cocktail tin, cover with ice, and shake hard for 5-7 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a slice of watermelon.

    To make a large batch, scale up in parts. Full cups will make over a gallon of cocktail, FYI. Use 1/2 cups if you don’t need that much. 

    8 parts watermelon juice
    5 parts mezcal
    3 parts simple syrup
    2 parts lime juice


  • Delayed Pleasure Cocktail

    Start the night before the bash.

    Follow the same instructions for the Instant gratification cocktail, but, to make it
    worthwhile, make 4-6 drinks. You can shake them 2 by 2 if you use a cocktail tin and a
    pint glass, making sure you start each batch with fresh ice.

    Strain the drinks as you go into a glass pitcher, and let the pitcher sit in the fridge
    overnight, allowing the sediment to settle to the bottom of the pitcher.

    At party time, fill some medium tall glasses with ice or cracked ice, and gently pour only
    the clear juice off the pitcher, filling each glass almost to the top.

    Top off each glass with some sparkling water, stir gently, and garnish with a slice of
