Drink Recipe: John Delorean



Published:

What’s better on a hot day than fresh watermelon? How about adding whiskey? Berkley’s Vinsetta Garage — recently featured on Esquire Network’s Best Bars in America — pays homage to Detroit auto icons such as John DeLorean. The watermelon shrub, made in house, makes this drink special — and perfect for lounging on the patio. — Dorothy Hernandez
