Behold, the drink for your summer parties has arrived! It’s refreshing, tasty and sweet just the right amount; everything you need from a summer drink!
It can be a non alcoholic drink, perfect even for kids, but it’s easy to transform it in a cocktail, with just a splash of vermouth. The sophistication of this watermelon tonic is mainly given from the star anise. I love how this drink makes you feel well hydrated. It could be perfect even to bring to the beach.
