Frozen Watermelon White Wine Spritzers
Author: 
Recipe Type: Cocktail
 
A mixed white wine drink with frozen watermelon cubes is a summer delight. Crisp, juicy and full of nutrition, it is a thirst quenching cocktail.
Ingredients
  • 1 medium watermelon
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 6-8 mint fresh leaves
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • Soda water
  • 1 bottle of a light, crisp & fruity white wine (sauvignon blanc / pinot grigio)
  • A pinch of rock salt
Instructions
  1. Cut ½ the watermelon into small 2-3? cubes and freeze in an ice tray for 5-6 hours. These, in itself, makes pretty delicious popsicles, so make sure you save some for the cocktail! Cut the remaining watermelon into larger pieces and keep aside.
  2. Slice the cucumber in half, discard the seeds and cut into smaller pieces. Blend the cucumber together with 6-8 frozen watermelon cubes, bigger watermelon pieces, mint leaves & lemon juice. Pass through a sieve to discard any solids, and season with a pinch or two of rock salt.
  3. When ready to serve, fill your flutes ½ way with white wine, top with the watermelon juice and finish it off with a splash of soda. Garnish with mint leaves and a couple of watermelon cubes – this not only keeps your drink chilled for longer, but also is quite a satisfying bite in the end.
