Something About Nothing

"Can you say something about nothing?"
— Helmholtz, Brave New World

Brave New Swirled

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 cup seedless watermelon, chopped into course cubes
  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 oz melon liqueur
  • A handful of ice

Add the vodka, watermelon, lemon juice, sugar and ice to a blender, running until smooth. Pour into a cocktail glass and float the liqueur on top.

Highly Pretentious Tasting Notes and Impressions:

  • Unbalanced flavor profile.
    • Blending a cup of watermelon with an ounce and a half of liquor simply tastes like blended watermelon.
  • Rich in real world texture.
    • Frothy at first, then settles into mushy.
