Have a Drink Friday - The Kentucky Devil

Have a Drink Friday - The Kentucky Devil

Came across this little beauty on my walk to the train after work the other day. Sign me up for a couple of these Kentucky Devils this weekend (might skip the gold flakes).


  • 1 1‰2 tsp. sugar
  • 3 oz. seedless watermelon, cut into 1" cubes (about 1‰2 cup)
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 1‰2 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. adobo sauce
  • Edible gold flakes, as garnish (optional)


Place 1‰2 tsp. sugar on a small plate; wet rim of cocktail glass and press it into sugar to coat rim. Combine watermelon, bourbon, lemon juice, adobo sauce, and remaining sugar in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until well chilled. Strain into the rimmed cocktail glass filled with ice. Garnish with gold flakes, if you like.
