The Chill Pill
Happy National Watermelon Day! Talk about a great reason for an even greater cocktail—it's always time for a toast! Before we jump into this great recipe created by Luis Hernandez of The Eddy, let's get some words from him first.
"This is a play on a more refreshing Michelada made with watermelon. It's more on the sour side, a very easy drinking cocktail with a bit of a kick, and also has the advantage of being very customizable, spirits-wise.
This name comes from a Bob's Burgers episode called “ The Unbearable Likeness of Gene." The name is open to interpretation, but the cocktail is very refreshing and definitely something to chill with."
