Ingredients

Wine Cooler

  • 1/3 cup watermelon juice
  • 1/2 cup Gallo Family Vineyard Riesling
  • 1/2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 Tbsp Mint Syrup recipe below
  • pinch salt
  • splash of club soda

Mint Syrup

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves

Instructions

Wine Cooler

  • Make the watermelon juice by cutting a seedless watermelon in half. Remove the rind and discard. Chop the watermelon into 1-inch cubes, place in a food processor fitted with a metal blade, and whirl like crazy until the watermelon is completely liquified. Strain the liquid through a cheesecloth or paper towel to remove the pulp.
  • Stir all of the ingredients together and pour into a glass filled with ice.

Mint Syrup

  • Stir the sugar and water together in a small pan over medium heat until the sugar completely dissolves. Add the mint leaves and bring to a simmer for five minutes. Remove from the heat and cool. Keep refrigerated until needed. It will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks.

Notes

If you have watermelon juice made and kept in a jar in the refrigerator, along with the mint syrup, this refreshing drink comes together in about 3 minutes.
