Watermelon Keen

If you're looking for a challenge that results in a fresh, herbaceous drink, give the Watermelon Keen a go. This vibrant cocktail just screams "Drink me on a patio".








  • 1.5 oz Broken Shed Vodka
  • 1 oz Aperol
  • 2 oz watermelon shrub (recipe follows)
  • 0.25 oz mint simple syrup
  • Garnish: 1 strawberry slice

Watermelon Shrub

  • 5 cups fresh watermelon
  • ⅓ cup clover honey
  • ½ cup raw apple cider vinegar

Puree the watermelon in a blender until smooth. Pass through a fine mesh strainer, then mix with the clover honey and raw apple cider vinegar. Store in a glass jar and place in the fridge for a few days before impressing your friends with this unique cocktail. The shrub will last in the fridge a few weeks.


Stir all the ingredients over ice, then strain into a double rocks glass over 1 large ice cube. Garnish with a strawberry slice and congratulate yourself on a job well done.
