Ingredients

To Prepare the Watermelon and Wine

  • 6 cups watermelon cubes frozen
  • 1 bottle chilled rose wine

Watermelon Syrup

  • 1 cup watermelon blended
  • ½ cup sugar

To Finish the Cocktail

  • Juice of one lime

Instructions

  • Freeze a bottle of Rosé wine for 45 minutes to get it thoroughly chilled. DON'T forget it!
  • Cut a small watermelon in half and cut into cubes and measure out 6 cups of cubes. Place the cubes on a tray and freeze them for at least an hour.
  • Meanwhile make the watermelon syrup by combining the watermelon puree and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer only until the sugar has dissolved. Pour into a container and refrigerate until cold.
  • When ready to serve, combine the wine, frozen watermelon, half of the watermelon syrup and the lime juice. Blend until slushy. Taste and add more syrup as necessary for sweetness.
  • Pour into chilled wine glasses and garnish with a watermelon slice.

Notes

You might need to add some ice cubes to make the cocktail slushy...just add a cup at a time until you get the right consistency.
