Of course, since its the in laws, I require alcohol. It honestly does help to be drunk.
Each year, I search for a new, summer-y cocktail. This year, I found one with watermelon, Cointreau and rose wine (you could also use moscato rosa, a slightly more sparkling wine)
And here it is, and the variation, after the kids scoffed all the watermelon...
- 3 cubes watermelon, frozen
- 20mL (just over half a shot) Cointreau
- rose wine
- champagne flute
- Place watermelon in the champagne flute
- pour over the Cointreau
- top with rose, and serve
