While the rest of the country is settling into chilly autumn weather, the sun is still shining here in Las Vegas, making it the perfect time to mix up this Watermelon Sunshine. It’s fresh and fruity, without being overly sweet, as the ginger, citrus, mint and basil help balance the fruit flavors and give the drink a grounded quality.

Ingredients

2 oz. Hanson of Sonoma ginger-flavored organic vodka

4 oz. yellow watermelon juice (can use traditional watermelon juice as an alternative)

1/2 oz. lime juice

1/2 oz. Wilks & Wilson Millicent’s Lime Mint Simple Syrup

Balled watermelon for garnish

Fresh basil for garnish

Dress the Drink dehydrated orange wheel for garnish

Method

Fill a Collins glass with ice, then add the vodka, juice and syrup. Stir well, garnish and serve.
