The Cocktail: Melon Head
What's In It: 1.5 oz Jim Bean, .75 oz Midori, .25 oz Cointreau, .25 oz Black Pepper Simple, .5 oz lime juice, 4 oz soda water. Garnished with lime peel
What They Say: "You've got to have fruit at the end of dinner in China... and a little alcohol. So late one night in Beijing, we decided to combine the two and blended up Hami melon, oranges and whiskey. We don't recall much after that, but I do remember calling my friend "melon head" in Chinese (gua tou) because he drank most of the concoction. The Danwei team has refined the drink by adding black-pepper syrup, lime, and soda water. Served over ice, the Melon Head is a nice complement to our spicy dishes."
