I swear, all I was doing was ruminating over what else one could do with the Hpnotiq that I totally got for MamaRooks, not myself, and somehow ended up with this deliciously refreshing near-summer Solstice cocktail. It has no name, so leave a comment and name this bev. Winner gets . . . ummm . . . my gratitude? I dunno, I’m not good at coming up with prizes. You can get your own cocktail?* I will make it from your favorite base ingredients and name it after you. That’s a decent prize, right?
Unnamed Tasty Blue Thing
2 oz. Hpnotiq
1 oz. vodka
1 oz. watermelon juice (I used a store-bought blend, so using real watermelon juice might change the proportions)
half a small/medium dollop of Rose’s Lime (it’s to taste, so, um, deal with it, because I have no idea as to a specific amount)
Shake vigorously over ice and strain, serve “up.” I just used a brandy snifter because it was clean – a martini glass would likely be better.
*Well, I still have to make a “Mandy Castle,” but I clearly I won’t forget that I owe you and I will totally get around to it.
