Half of me is still living in the sweltering heat, not wanting to let go of fresh summer flavors and spending our nights grilling, and the other half of me is already brainstorming everything “pumpkin spice” for fall.  I figure there’s still time left in the summer to enjoy some sips of this Watermelon White Wine Spritzer, so I’m going to indulge while I still can!

Before we go, I have so much to do.  Photos to edit, posts to write, a full-time job to still attend :). Its going to be a long, but exciting week.  This little cocktail will help get me through! I had some watermelon at the house, and I had a feeling it might be a fresh and delicious compliment to white wine.  I was right.  Watermelon White Wine Spritzer…new favorite.

I don’t mind a little pulp in my drinks, but if you do, be sure to pour the watermelon puree through a cheesecloth or other form of strainer.  But a little pulp never hurt anyone.  And I’m all about easy.  So no straining for me!
