Ronaldo Colli, a San Francisco Bay Area mixologist and co-owner of the Ivy Room in Albany, California, developed this cocktail for CHOW. The combination of watermelon, rosemary, vodka, and Licor 43 may seem odd, but the flavors are surprisingly complementary and refreshing. Sip one on a hot summer evening or enjoy at a barbecue.
What to buy: Licor 43 Cuarenta y Tres is a Spanish liqueur with great spiced notes and a vanilla flavor; it’s often served on the rocks. It can be found at high-end liquor stores and online.
