FOOD: WATERMELON SANGRIA

Happy 4th of July Westchester!

I have an easy and delicious cocktail that will keep you cool and refreshed this weekend and all summer long.

One of the foods that symbolizes summer for me is watermelon, so I’ve experimented with my sangria recipe and created the Watermelon Sangria you see below.

Watermelon Sangria

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 ounces fresh watermelon cubed
1 part white wine(I enjoy a light white; but use what you have)
1 part vodka (fruit flavored will work as well)
1 part lemonade (watermelon lemonade will work even better)
Ice
Watermelon, blueberries, and mint to garnish

Start by putting your watermelon and sugar in a shaker. Muddle both ingredients until you create a sweet watermelon cider of sorts. Add your ice, white wine, vodka, and lemonade. Shake thoroughly and pour into your glass. Add your garnish and enjoy!

Happy 4th and see you soon Food Finders!

Our Orange Creamsicle Martini is easy to make and even easier to share with your friends at your next dinner party or BBQ. It is a perfect blend of citrus and sweet cream. Call over some friends and share some tonight!

2 ounces whipped cream flavored vodka (You may substitute 1 ounce of vodka in lieu of flavored vodka if you prefer your martini less sweet)

2 ounces orange liquor (Use orange flavored cognac for those who want more kick!)

Shake with ice and garnish with a few orange rinds.

ENJOY!

Summer is upon is and how better to get into the summer spirit than by slicing up some sweet and refreshing watermelon. I have a gadget that will make your slicing and serving quick and mess free.

Let me introduce you to I Genietti Angurello. “Anguria” means watermelon in Italian so this appropriately named stainless steel gadget cuts even watermelon slices and works like a tong as well so that you may serve right off the rind. All the messy juices stay in the melon and clean up is quick and easy. Step by step photos below.

I picked mine up for ~20 dollars from The Grommet. Link attached for your convenience. Be sure to pick one and tell me all about it.
