Muddle chunks of watermelon with simple syrup in the bottom of a mixing glass. Add gin, lime juice and Campari, shake and pour unstrained into a tall Collins glass, garnishing with a wedge of watermelon.


Subbing in Hendrick's or reposado tequila is delicious, too

  • Don't add too much SS, watermelon might be quite sweet enough. SS only for rounding off the edges of the lime juice. — ★★★★
  • 1/2 oz rosemary syrup instead of simple — ★★★★
  • Tastes like the parts but not much else. I'd try this with an Old Tom. — ★★★
  • Refreshing and enjoyable. Nothing that would really drive me to make this one again, but it was fun to make and enjoy. — ★★★

Nice and refreshing; doubling the lime juice doesn't hurt.

Corrected to Lemon juice from Lime juice, as found in two references elsewhere. Originally posted reference is defunct.
