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!
1 cup cubed seedless watermelon
3 1/2 ounces Rometti Limoncello
1/2 ounce lemon-flavored or light rum
Splash club soda
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.
