Though fresh watermelon is as high on our list of things we'll miss the most about summer as laying out on Rockaway Beach and Prospect Park concerts, Mulberry Project is extending the season as long as possible with the Dry and Spicy. In this cocktail, big hunks of cooling watermelon are set against a burst of Thai chili that adds fiery depth to Brugal extra dry rum, lime juice and simple syrup. "I wanted to show that layering sweetness, dryness and spiciness could create a balanced and refreshing drink," says Mulberry Project bartender Scott Fitzgerald. "It allows for the rum's flavors to shine through." Get one now. Although this gloomy week has been stiflingly muggy, we're not deluded; we know these sultry summer days are dwindling.
