In response to many requests, here is our friend John’s version of a cocktail he has named “Summertime”.
2 oz fresh watermelon 1 1/2 oz bourbon 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur 2 dashes Fee Bros. rhubarb bitters
Muddle watermelon in a mixing glass or shaker until it is crushed and juicy. Add the remaining ingredients and ice; shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass (we used heavier martini style glasses since they had to go in the freezer). Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a wedge of watermelon.
