Watermelon Shooters with Lemon Salt

Watermelon Shooters with Lemon Salt 0

A delicious and fresh summer drink that serves around 4 people. The perfect way to take advantage of summer watermelon. This drink plays well with vodka, tequila, rum, and more, however it is just as tasty on its own. Have fun and make it your own, there are no rules!

Recipe from Bitterman's Field Guide to Bitters and Amari | Hot Bittered Rum 0

The presence of mulling spices in a drink is no big thing, except when the spices are actually mulling in the drink. Adding cloves and lemon peel to hot alcohol results in lightning-fast extraction of flavors that at first sip are delicious but can quickly become overwhelming. By the time you’re done, you feel like you need to dip yourself in alcohol to extract all the clove and limonene from you. Let bitters do the heavy aromatic lifting, and enjoy the stability of balanced bitter sweetness as it supports the boozy, spicy warmth at the heart of the drink.

The heady addition of anise and fennel bitters marries the dish with the vibrancy of New Orleans: nothing short of physical passion in stew form.
