Mixing Tips

General

  • Try to use cold liquids to mix the drink. It will give you more control over the dilution.

Mise En Place

  • Keep all equipment and ingredients within range. It will be easier and faster to mix the drink.

Ice

  • If you use a large ice ball, after removing it from the freezer, let it stay for some minutes. Otherwise, it might crack once you pour the liquid over the ice ball.

Garnish

  • Be careful and confident if you want to zest a citrus fruit with a zest peeler!

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.
