Preparation Time

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) white balsamic vinegar
  • 6 tbsp store bought pickling spice
  • 500 g watermelon, cut into thin wedge-shaped slices
  • 3 cups (750ml) melon liqueur, such as Midori
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) gin
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) seltzer or club soda
  • Ice cubes
Directions
  1. Bring vinegar and pickling spice to boil in small saucepan for 2 minutes. Strain pickling liquid through cheesecloth-lined strainer into liquid measuring cup. Fold up ends of cheesecloth to form a spice pouch; tie tightly with string.
  2. Place watermelon slices in large resealable plastic bag or jar large enough to hold all of the slices. Pour melon liqueur, gin, pickled vinegar and spice pouch into bag or jar. Seal tightly. Let stand at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to develop.
  3. For each cocktail, pour 1 cup (250ml) of the pickled melon mixture into tall ice-filled beverage glass. Top each glass with 1/4 cup (60ml) of the seltzer. Garnish with a pickled watermelon slice. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 6 cocktails.
