Adding a little heat to an otherwise refreshing cocktail is always a good idea. And with watermelon—a quintessentially summer flavor—the combination is irresistible.
This whiskey cocktail marries watermelon juice with traditional Mexican flavors—citrus, chile, and salt—for a surprising yet delicious combination.
