Farewell To Summer
Durham Distillery Conniption Gin
Regarding the cocktail ingredients: Capelletti is wine aperitif. It gives depth to the drink so we recommend tracking it down if you can. Locally, Wine Authorities is your place to get this. Unfortunately Total Wine does not carry. In a bind, Cardamaro or Aperol may work.
1.5 oz. fresh watermelon juice
½ oz. of simple syrup (1:1)
½ oz. lime juice
¼ oz. Capelletti
4 mint leaves
Top with cold Club soda (1-2oz)
Add all ingredients with ice (except club soda) to shaker. Shake well to release mint oils and aerate.
Strain into old fashioned glass with ice and top with club soda.
Garnish with fresh mint leaves.
