2 oz. VEEV

1 1/4 oz. Yellow Watermelon Shrub*

1/4 oz. Yellow Chartreuse

1/2 oz. Lemon

3 Ginger Slices

3 Jalapeño Slices

PREPARATION:

*Yellow watermelon shrub

4 parts Yellow Watermelon Juice

1 part Simple Syrup

1/2 part White Vinegar

GARNISH:

Half of Jalapeño Slice

GLASSWARE:

Old Fashioned

INSPIRATION:

As we all drink with our eyes first, I loved the idea of presenting a vibrant, complex cocktail with a little misdirection. We see yellow and bright, but taste bold, spicy, and refreshing. The fruit forward VEEV supports as a beautiful backbone to all the other flavors compliment the spirit in different ways. Ginger adds spice. Jalapeño adds heat. Watermelon cools down. She is fiery, bold, and beautiful. She is The Lioness.
