This puppy has three ingredients and it combines two of my favorite drinks into one - agua fresca and sparkling rosé. How easy is that (Ina's not going to sue me for saying that is she?)? Anyway, it's safe to say I'll be drinking a lot of these this summer. The great thing is that kiddos can have the agua fresca and the grownups can have the fun stuff. The recipe is alcoholic, but it's still family friendly!
Watermelon Rosé Sparklers
8-10 cups seedless watermelon, cubed (about 1/2 mini watermelon or 3 1/2 lb)
1 - 750 ml bottle of sparkling rosé
1-2 tsp freshly squeeze lime juice
lime wheels for garnish
Blend the watermelon and lime juice until smooth. Strain and place in the fridge until thoroughly chilled, about 2-3 hours.
Pour roughly 2 ounces of rosé and 2 ounces of watermelon juice into a champagne flute, garnish with lime.
Bottoms up and Happy Fourth!!
