How did springtime in St. Augustine inspire this cocktail?
Growing up in St. Augustine I have prominent memories of spring. Cool crisp mornings with a blazing hot afternoon. I went to Ketterlinus Elementary on Orange St. and I remember celebrating the wonderful weather by having BBQ for lunch, watermelon for a snack, and finishing the day with endless fun at Project Swing downtown. This cocktail hits all the notes of my earliest memories enjoying spring, but with a grown-up twist.
