sip and read

The Food and Pottery Connection is about sipping something sweet from a handmade source while exploring NEW cookbooks.

To Sip in Summer:
Watermelon Berry Sparkler 
recipe from Redbook - makes 16
  • 2 cup(s) watermelon, cubed and seeded
  • 1 container(s) (6 ounces) red raspberries
  • 2 tablespoon(s) superfine sugar, use 3 tablespoons if too tart
  •  cold brut champagne or prosecco (dry Italian sparkling wine
  1. Puree watermelon and raspberries in a blender. Scrape mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard seeds. Stir sugar into puree (adding more if too tart). Puree can be made up to 1 day ahead and refrigerated.
  2. For sparklers, pour 2 tbsp puree into each champagne glass and top with 4 oz cold brut champagne or prosecco. For a nonalcoholic version, use club soda or seltzer instead.
