Meloneous Mint

About this Cocktail

In honor of the great Thelonious Monk, who surely never tasted this delicacy, even if his playing suggests otherwise.

Makes two drinks (it's a self-accompanying duet).

Ingredients:
  • 12-18 fresh mint leaves
  • One slice (ca 2-4 oz) watermelon flesh
  • 3/4 oz agave syrup
  • 3/4 oz fresh lime
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon
  • 6 oz Gin (I used Tanqueray)
  • 3 dashes Rhubarb bitters
Preparation:

Combine mint leaves, melon pieces, agave, and lemon/lime juices in shaker. Muddle. Add Gin, bitters, and ice; shake thoroughly. Strain into Highball glass with a large rock. Garnish with top of a mint sprig.

Put on a Monk tune. Sip. Hark. Enjoy.
