We bought a new variety of watermelon (orange!) at the farmers market. We hated it. We bought a new white wine at the liquor store. We hated it. We put them together to create a new drink. We loved it. Funny what a little simple syrup and lime juice with do.
Watermelon and Wine Spritzers
- 5 cups watermelon
- 2 cups white wine
- juice from 1/2 lime
- 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup simple syrup
- 12 ounces soda water
Remove as many seeds as possible from the watermelon and puree in a blender. Place a fine-mesh sieve over a large bowl and strain juice through to remove and pulp and seeds. Pour juice in a pitcher and add lime juice, wine and simple syrup to taste. Add soda water and serve in glasses over ice.
