One of life’s many little pleasures is being able to rattle off quotes from old-school Simpsons episodes (or Seinfeld, or whatever it was that you and your buddies practically memorised when you should have been studying for that all-important exam) that are immediately understood. To that end, some of you, I hope, will recognise the quote I’ve named this drink after – ‘Quit your daydreaming, melonhead!’ And if you don’t, that’s OK, too. Cause all you really need to recognise to enjoy this jammy, rich concoction is that sometimes in life, you need to slow down and enjoy the little things. Like quoting The Simpsons.
90ml watermelon juice, strained
45 ml sloe gin
5ml vanilla vodka
10ml fresh lime juice
Something that would blend in at a whimsical garden party held by the Mad Hatter. Failing that, a jam jar will do.
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass that’s half-full of ice. Stir thoroughly to both combine and chill. Strain into the serving glass and relaaaaax.
This one’s by us. Enjoy!
