Created by Gabe Orta, co-founder of Bar Lab in Miami, this drink was inspired by Orta’s Mexican travels, and uses fresh watermelon to balance the spicy, salty Tajín and tart lime juice.
- 12-14 watermelon chunks
- 3 oz. Johnnie Walker Red Label (or other blended scotch)
- 2 oz. ginger ale
- Garnish: lime wedge and fresh watermelon cubes dusted with Tajín
Blend watermelon chunks in a blender (to make 8 ounces of juice). Divide watermelon juice and scotch into two frozen rocks glasses. Stir for 2 seconds. Top with ginger ale and garnish with fresh watermelon dusted with Tajín and lime juice.
