Celebrate summer's end with a rosé refresher

A good cocktail doesn't have to be expensive or contain sophisticated ingredients that are difficult to find. Most of the time you can find inspiration from what is already available in your refrigerator. 

For this refresher, I mixed pomegranate juice, a few watermelon cubes and a bottle of rosé wine easily available at a big box store. 

Ingredients: 
  • 2 fl. oz. rosé wine of your choice 
  • 2 fl. oz. pomegranate juice 
  • 3 oz. watermelon 
  • 3 oz. ice cubes 
  • Blood orange slices, optional 

Makes 1 serving. 

Directions: 

In a powerful blender, mix everything together until the ice is finely crushed and the drink resembles a granita. Pour in a fancy glass, decorate with a slice of blood orange and serve. 

P.S. This is a great way to make the most of a bottle of rosé you didn't quite like drinking straight.
