Mezcal meets watermelon sorbet in Fanny Chu’s updated Sgroppino. With a smoky-sweet profile, her modern take is more than an after-dinner drink, it’s an all-day affair. For a less smoky profile, try it with a different white spirit like gin, rum, tequila or vodka.
- 1 scoop watermelon sorbet (see Editor's Note)
- 1 1/2 ounces mezcal
Garnish: mint leaf, lime wheel
- Serve the sorbet in a coupe and top with mezcal.
- Garnish with a mint leaf and a lime wheel.
20 ounces watermelon juice
10 ounces simple syrup
1 ounce lime or lemon juice
Combine the watermelon juice, simple syrup and lime (or lemon) juice in a sealed container and refrigerate for at least 2 to 4 hours. Then, pour the mixture into a sorbet or ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions.
