Summer in the South: Sparkling Watermelon Cocktail

Lori's Prosecco & Watermelon Spritzer

Everyone loves an ice cold glass of prosecco, and you can't go wrong with watermelon in the summertime. Why not combine the two and create a great cocktail for any occasion?!

What you'll need:

Recipe:

Purée 1-1/2 cups of watermelon chunks in a blender, and pour into a shaker filled with ice.  Add 3 ounces of Boodles gin, the juice of two limes, and 1 ounce of simple syrup.  Shake well, and pour into 4 champagne flutes, filling each about 2/3 full. Top with chilled LaMarca Prosecco and enjoy!

Pro-tip: Add a skewer of fruit to the top of the glass as a garnish! We used fresh blueberries to celebrate the 4th of July!

Serving: 4

And since we're entertaining...I thought I'd suggest some of my favorite summer glass- and serving ware from CB2, West Elm (#mywestelm) & Anthropologie
