This month’s drink is super summery and really pretty to boot!
1.5 ounces vodka
½ ounce St. Elder
½ ounce lime juice
4 ounces fresh watermelon juice
1 ounce club soda
Thai basil leaves
Blend watermelon until smooth. Shake vodka, watermelon juice and lime juice over ice. Stain into glass, add Thai basil leaves and stir. Add St. Elder float and top with club soda. Garnish with flower.
