Watermelon Mint Cocktail Recipe

Ingredients

  • Watermelon
  • Prosecco
  • Fresh sprigs of mint

Method

  • First we’ll make watermelon juice and the little melon stars. Quarter a watermelon and cut out large chunks.
  • Reserve one or two very thinly cut slices to make fun watermelon shapes with cookie cutters — these make such a fun addition and garnish for the cocktail. They’d also just be a fun treat for kids on their own.
  • To make the watermelon juice, pulse chunks of melon in food processor, blender or with an immersion blender, then pour through fine sieve into container to reserve the juice.
  • Snip a few sprigs of fresh mint from the garden, pull the bottle of Prosecco out from chilling in the fridge and you’re practically all set.
  • Start by dropping a small piece or shapes of watermelon into the bottom of your glass.
  • Fill bottom of glass with fresh watermelon juice — how much is up to you. The more you add, the more watermelon flavor will come through at the end.
  • Pour Prosecco over the watermelon juice, careful to go slowly or it will spill over.
  • Going slowly will also help you achieve that nice ombre effect that helps this cocktail look so appealing.
  • Finish with a full sprig of mint and another slice of watermelon as a garnish. You can make a small slice in the little watermelon shape you make to help it grab onto the edge of the glass.
  • To make a virgin version of this drink, you could use sparkling water or lemonade in place of the Prosecco – the result is just as bright and flavorful.

Prosecco Margaritas

Prosecco Margaritas

Ingredients

  • 3 oz. blanco tequila, or to taste
  • 3 oz. Cointreau®
  • 4 oz. chilled simple syrup*, or to taste
  • 8 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice, or to taste
  • 1  750-mL bottle chilled Prosecco (preferrably on the sweeter side, such as Dry or Demi-Sec)
  • coarse salt, to rim glasses
  • fresh lime wedges, for garnish

Instructions

In a small to medium-sized jar or bowl, add the tequila, Cointreau, simple syrup, and fresh lime juice. Prepare this mixture at least a couple hours prior to serving the margaritas, and place in refrigerator to chill.

This recipe will make 6 smaller or 4 medium-sized margaritas. Gather 4 to 6 glasses and get started! If salting the rims of your glasses, run the cut edge of a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and dip the rim into a small plate of coarse salt. Repeat with remaining glasses. Add ice to glasses and divide the tequila mixture amongst the glasses. Top with Prosecco, dividing evenly amongst the glasses. Give a little stir to combine, and then taste test. Adjust for individual tastes by having more simple syrup on hand for extra sweetness and lime for tartness, plus extra tequila for those who like a bit more tequila bite. Squeeze a lime wedge over the top and add another one to the rim of the glass. Enjoy!
