editor recipe notes

I got inspired by Jörg Meyers Youtube Channel. He presented a nice riff on the Negroni made with Watermelon Liqueur some time ago.
You just have to be careful about the sweetness of the drink. Better chill all your liqueurs in advance.
I prefer an Ice Ball because you have a little more control over the dilution.
