Save A Slice Of Watermelon For This Cool, Easy Cocktail

Watermelon is hands down, the no-contest king of summer fruits. Really, what's a backyard BBQ without a few of these mouthwatering slices floating around? But, it turns out we've been misusing them all this time. Just take a look at this video recipe for the Summer Storm cocktail, created by bartender Andrew Pistella from the chic, brand-new bar (and R29 neighbor) Wise Men. All it takes is some ginger, rum, ginger beer, basil, and just a slice or two of melon to make the ultimate, summer potion for your next backyard bash. The best part? No pits!
