    Would it work to create an infusion of Watemelon juice and Rye along with a Lemon Syrup so instead of six steps you know have four?! Feedback anyone?

    Definitely a great summer cocktail. Just made it and subbed chipotle simple in place of regular. Delicious.

    Thanks for sharing this. Made it with some watermelon/cucumber/lime juice I happened to have, and used hop bitters. Yum!

    (Oh, but I think that name was taken by an older cocktail already.)
