Oh watermelon, what a stroll down memory lane you evoke. From seed spitting contests, to sticky fingers and stickier cheeks, to dare we leave out, filling you with cheap vodka and sticking you in the freezer for a feisty evening of fun, you have enriched our lives throughout the years, dear pink melon. For these reasons and many more we will never forget you, our loyal and trusty friend, especially not during the dog days of summer. However, maybe just this once we’ll take your wild, sassy sister for a spin; the electric yellow watermelon. Yes, it’s about to get juicy.
The electric yellow watermelon, also known as yellow crimson watermelon, has grown in popularity over recent years and can be found during the months of summer in most grocery stores. It tends to be a tad sweeter tasting than its notorious pink counterpart, and with floral and honey notes it shines as a star cocktail ingredient.
The All in the Golden Afternoon cocktail is as hydrating as a liquid libation can be. It bursts with a light, sweet freshness that defies the heat of the midday sun. The mint and basil add a depth of earthiness, while the watermelon juice uplifts the flavor and pleasures the palette. The result is juicy harmony, harp stings and all. But don’t thank us; thank your dear old friend watermelon.
