This delicious summer cocktail is part of the #DrinkTheSummer series a collection of bloggers are doing. Dubbed 'The Sugar Hollow,' this watermelon gin cocktail was created by Will Frolic For Food. It is also garnished with cardamom and lime.

In addition to watermelon juice, you will need ingredients including lime peel, gin, campari, lime juice, maple syrup (simple syrup will also do), black cardamom and ice cubes to recreate this delicious summer cocktail. A thin slice of watermelon rind can be used for garnish, finishing off a vibrantly hued beverage.

The subtly sweet and refreshing drink also has "nuanced bitter-sweet herbal overtones" from the ground cardamom and campari. Meanwhile the lime balances everything out by adding acidity to counteract the sweetness.
