Farewell to Summer Cocktail
Where To Buy - Durham Distillery

Farewell to Summer

  • 2 oz Conniption American Dry gin
  • 1.5 oz fresh watermelon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1/4 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. Top with club soda. Garnish with fresh mint.

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.
