Summer calls for a blended frozen beverage do you agree? My 2020 warm weather drink of choice: sparkling watermelon raspberry slushie cocktail. Oh and this recipe makes a pitcher of it so get excited 🥂!
The secret to the perfect sparkling watermelon raspberry slushie cocktail? Frozen watermelon. Cube it up prior to freezing, throw it in a ziplock bag, and freeze until ready to blend up!
Other than that, this cocktail takes approximately 5 minutes to make and is perfect for any (social distancing, mask wearing, no more than 5 people - oh the times we live in) get together out on your porch/balcony/deck or picnic.

A watermelon raspberry frosé with fresh lime juice, a splash of grand mariner, and your choice of vodka or gin. The perfect chilled beverage for summer al fresco dining!
- 2 cups watermelon, cubed and frozen (about 8 ounces)
- 2 cups frozen raspberries (about 8 ounces)
- ½ cup your favorite vodka or gin
- ½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- ¼ cup Grand Mariner
- 750 mL Sparkling Rosé wine (I prefer a drier rosé but if you like a sweeter taste, go for it!)
- 3-4 mint sprigs, plus extra for garnish
- Add frozen watermelon, frozen raspberries, mint sprigs, lime juice, vodka or gin, and Grand Marnier to a blender. Blend until completely smooth.
- Pour into a pitcher. Slowly add sparkling rosé (it will bubble up if you pour it in too fast!). Stir gently until combined.
- Pour into glasses as desired. Garnish with mint sprigs and a slice of fresh watermelon. Serve chilled!
