for Focus on the Coast
4-6 chunks of seedless watermelon
3-4 sprigs of fresh basil
1/2 oz. Barenjager honey liqueur
1.5 oz. Covington sweet potato vodka
Splash of seltzer
Muddle the first three ingredients together in a mixing glass.
Add ice and vodka.
Shake for about twenty seconds, then strain into a pre-chilled glass.
Add a splash of club soda to the icy mixture, swirl, then strain again.
To garnish, I used a wedge of watermelon and basil flower.
