Watermelon Gin and Tonic

Watermelon Gin and Tonic

Watermelon Gin and Tonic. A little twist on an ol’ classic.



Level: Easy

Serves: 1


  • 4 ounces, weight Watermelon, Cubed
  • ½ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Watermelon Syrup
  • 3 ounces, fluid Gin
  • 4 ounces, fluid Tonic
  • Watermelon Balls And Lime, For Garnish


In a blender, add the watermelon, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Pulse until smooth. Line a sieve with cheesecloth and strain watermelon mixture. (Note: If you don’t have cheesecloth, I’d recommend running it through the sieve twice. Should work close to the same.) Transfer to the fridge to chill.

In a glass, add the watermelon syrup first, then the gin, then the tonic. Stir. Garnish with watermelon balls and lime.
