Watermelon Daisy, featuring James River Distillery

Behind the bar Whitney keeps things pretty classic, but she also likes to have fun with newer spirits and local ingredients. “This past summer, I really enjoyed going to the farmer’s market and picking up fresh fruits and turning them into shrubs and syrups for the bar. Not only does it create some great cocktails, but also it is an awesome way to enjoy summer fruits into the early autumn.”

INGREDIENTS
2.5 oz. Commonwealth Gin
1 oz. Dolin Blanc
1 oz. Watermelon Syrup
½ oz. Fresh Lime Juice 

PREPARATION
Add all ingredients into a mixing glass and stir until well chilled. Strain the contents into a coupe glass and garnish with a piece of watermelon.
