Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium seedless watermelon, washed
  • 3 750 milliliter bottles rosé wine, chilled
  • 1 375 milliliter bottle sparkling wine, Champagne or moscato, chilled
  • Chef notes

    Big chunks of watermelon in rosé wine — what's not to love? The best part is eating the chunks of watermelon the day after the party.

    Preparation

    Several hours before serving, slice big slabs of rind from around the outside of the watermelon, making sure there's plenty of red fruit attached. Slice the rind into large chunks. Add the chunks to a large drink dispenser or punch bowl and add the rosé wine. Cover and stick it in the fridge to let it chill for at least 6 hours (or more if you can).

    Right before serving, stir in the chilled sparkling wine. Serve in glasses, using tongs to add individual pieces of fruit. Yum!
