Reads & Refreshments: Summer’s SaltAugust 7, 2015
R&R has always been summer’s specialty. As the pace of life slows in direct proportion to rising temps, we discover oases of time to pursue life’s little pleasures. This month, we’re indulging in pure escapism, with the transportive powers of good books and cheery cocktails. Poolside or porch-poised,we’ll find a bit of shade and thumb through far-flung locales that pair perfectly with this salty seaside sipper.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Zest from one lime
3 ounces gin
3 ounces watermelon juice
½ ounce cucumber juice
HOW TO MAKE IT…
Add plenty of sea salt and lime zest to a small plate. Wet the rim of a cocktail glass with lime wedge and dip into the salt-zest mixture. Add ice to glass. In a shaker filled with more ice, add gin and juices, and shake well. Strain into glass and top with seltzer. Serve with lime wedge.
More summertime sips, right this way.
