The Curly and the Turk
1.5 G'vine Gin
.75 blue curacao
.75 chili hibiscus syrup*
2 dashes Moroccan bitters
To make cocktail: pour chile-hibiscus syrup into the bottom of a tall glass, then fill 2/3 full with crushed ice. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add gin, curacao, bitters, and lemon juice. Shake.
Slowly strain gin and curacao mixture over the ice, so that it floats over syrup. Top with additional crushed ice and insert two tall straws directly in the middle of the glass to replicate popsicle sticks.
2 oz grey goose cherry noir
1.5 oz watermelon purée
Shaken vigorously until frothy
Pour over ice, fill with soda
Garnish with watermelon chunk and sprig of fresh mint
