Whiskey Watermelon Picnic

Sprinkling a little salt on your watermelon has become a staple for some, but for others, not so much. Some people say it makes the watermelon taste better, but how though. Well, watermelon is bitter, sweet, and sour. This is what makes watermelon so unique, the bitter flavors are strong enough to keep the sweet from being overpowering, and the sour makes the bitter more manageable. When you sprinkle salt on your watermelon, the balance of flavors shifts and the taste becomes increasingly sweet! When the bitterness of the watermelon is masked by the salt, the sugary sweetness shines bright! Salt can also activate your salivary glands, so a bit of salt could actually make watermelon seem juicier. We thought re-creating this delicious phenomenon would be an awesome cocktail idea, introducing the Whiskey Watermelon Picnic!

Another refreshing, fun, and delicious summer cocktail for you to enjoy this Labor Day Weekend. This cocktail is so easy to make with only five ingredients needed, and I bet you could guess at least two of them LOL! Fresh watermelon, Wheat Penny 1958 Bourbon, Lime Juice, Agave Syrup, and Kosher Salt. Celebrate the unofficial end to summer with a picnic this weekend! Having a picnic is a great way to get outdoors with a few friends or family and enjoy the time together. Picnicking is typically all about the food, but to us, the Whiskey Watermelon Picnic is essential. Cheers!

Salting your watermelon answers another summertime dilemma by replenishing your salts! When we sweat, our bodies lose plenty of electrolytes, including sodium. This cocktail can provide you with hydration, nutrients, and electrolytes, it’s like nature’s sports drink!
