“I wanted to make a watermelon cocktail that provided a full 360° experience of the fruit embracing the juice, flesh, rind, the whole shebang. Using untraditional ingredients to complement El Silencio Mezcal paired with the familiar watermelon flavor.”
— Maxwell Reis


1.5 oz El Silencio Espadin
1 oz Blackberry grenadine
1 oz Lime juice
.75 oz Chareua
1.5 oz Watermelon Juice
.75 oz Lustau Manzanilla Sherry
1½ oz soda water

Rocket Man

“I love making drinks out of untraditional ingredients, and Arugula has been high on my list for some time. When experimenting I like to use El Silencio, and for this cocktail I wanted to create a refreshing backdrop that the bitterness of the arugula would accentuate and balance. The end result is a beautiful harmony that creates a flavor of its own. It’s refreshing and non confronting, but it makes you think, which is a cocktail model I use often.” — Maxwell Reis

.5 oz Aalborg aquavit

.75 oz simple syrup
