From TIPSY TEXAN: SPIRITS AND COCKTAILS FROM
THE LONE STAR STATE by David Alan

Serves 1

When local watermelons are at their peak of sweetness, the agave nectar is not necessary, though it can be added when adjusting the taste for less-sweet melons or when a sweeter drink is preferred.

2 ounces Tito’s Handmade Vodka
¾ ounce St-Germain elderflower liqueur
1 ½ ounces watermelon water (see Note)
¾ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
¼ ounce agave nectar (optional)
Watermelon wedge, for garnish

Combine all the ingredients, except the watermelon wedge, in a mixing glass and shake vigorously with ice to chill. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the watermelon wedge.

NoteŠ‹Œ: You can create the watermelon water a number of ways: Crush watermelon with a muddler and push through a strainer; run it through a pulp extractor–style juicer; or blend lightly in a blender and pour through a strainer.
