Went to the farmers market today and I still can't find sweet watermelon. Don't know if something is off about this season but I am disappointed that I haven't been able to use it in any cocktails yet. But I did find some beautiful cantalope that I will mix with mint and gin that should make a refreshing cocktail. I also think it will go really well with lemon verbana. Also found some great mulberries from Garcia farms that I can't wait to play with. And now that blueberries are officially out of season, I will start mixing my champagne grapes(marinated in Grand Marnier) with sage and St. Germain. I love St. Germain and can never get enough of it. I think it is probably the most amazing liqueur out there and the bottle is so damn beautiful. I think I am going to bring my St Germain beaker to work today to show it off!
