Watermelon cocktail with ginger liqueur and sugar-spiced rim

Biting into a slice of ripe, juicy watermelon is absolutely thrilling, and I wanted the first sip of this cocktail to be just the same. The aromatic, sweet watermelon pairs marvelously with the ginger liqueur while a generous splash of fresh lime juice keeps its sweetness in check. Furthermore, the sugared rim, spiked with cayenne, brings a delightful spicy hint to each sip.

This delectable concoction is simple to prepare and can be assembled in minutes, which makes it a good candidate for parties. The watermelon and lime can be juiced ahead of time and the rims dipped in the spiced sugar before pouring the drinks. Then, when you’re ready to serve, just shake, pour… and sip!
