It’s the start of August, and summer fruits are at their peak! Jake Worth, the Assistant General Manager of Sway West Lake Hills, came to Studio 512 to take watermelon up a notch with Sway’s “Monk Water” cocktail.
The Monk Water is made with vodka, lime, cucumber, mint, cilantro, soda water and, of course, fresh watermelon juice. It’s a muddled drink that utilizes cilantro stems, cucumber, mint, palm syrup first, then adds ice, vodka and watermelon juice using a Japanese-style jigger. The Monk Water gets shaken, strained and topped with a dash of soda for a refreshing finish.
Check out Sway’s event this weekend: it’s called Moo Sway All Day, and it features Thai brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., happy hour pricing for alcoholic beverages all day and a curated live DJ set from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. It’ll take place this Sunday, August 4th at the Domain NORTHSIDE location.
