Happy Hour Tuesday: Meloncello Cocktail

Rometti Limoncello Happy Hour Tuesday Meloncello Cocktail

Happy Hour Tuesday!

As you all know either through your Grandma’s healthy eating habits advices or because of all those losing-weight advertisements on tv, fruit and vegetables are great sources of vitamins and nutrients. Among the fruit that replenish us with vitamin C we find watermelon, the bright red, fresh and juicy fruit of the vine-like watermelon plant. Even the rinds contain hidden nutrients although their taste prevents most of the people from eating them.

Meloncello Cocktail is a refreshing drink that combines the sugary taste of watermelon with the citrusy flavor of limoncello. Sit back and enjoy the afternoon with an icy glass of fun, fresh, Meloncello Cocktail!

Ingredients:

1 cup cubed seedless watermelon
ice cubes
3 1/2 ounces Rometti Limoncello
1/2 ounce lemon-flavored or light rum
Splash club soda
cocktail sugar
lemon wedge

Rim a rocks glass with the sugar, if desired, and put in the freezer. Puree the watermelon cubes in a blender until juicy.
Fill the prepped glass with ice.
Add the watermelon juice, Rometti Limoncello and rum. Top off with enough club soda to give the drink a light bubble.
Garnish with the lemon wedge and serve.

~Enjoy!
