Smashed?  What an interesting phrase?

What are other funny names for getting drunk?

Turns out there are many interesting and sometimes graphic terms for getting drunk:

Hammered, Plowed, Wasted…Upholstered? (Alarming)

Skunked, Steamed, Toasted, Schwasted, F*cked-up, Wrecked, Shitfaced, Pickled and Embalmed (So Disturbing)

 

When all else fails tell them to supercalifuckilistic kissmyassadocious and have a cocktail

Why will you love this Cocktail?

  • The combination of watermelon, Limoncello, Rose Prosecco, and Basil makes a fresh and tasteful cocktail
  • 5 minutes to make!
  • So refreshing on a hot summer day

 

Ingredients

  • Watermelon
  • Limoncello
  • Agave
  • Rose Prosecco
  • Fresh Basil

What kind of watermelon is best?

Use seedless watermelon. Seedless watermelon may still have small white seeds, but you just want to make sure it doesn’t have the big black seeds.  Also you don’t need a large quantity of watermelon- a few slices will work for several cocktails.

If you’re buying a watermelon, how do you know if it’s a good one?

  • Find the field spot, it should be a yellowish creamy color on the outside where the watermelon had been resting on the ground.
  • Dull looking watermelons are better; shiny melons are not yet ripe.
  • Knock on it with your knuckles; the surface should be hard/firm. A dull thud indicates the flesh inside is getting old
  • Get the heaviest one for its size; water is heavy and a lot of water in a watermelon is a positive indicator!
  • You want uniform shape – round or oval is fine…irregular edges might indicate an inconsistent water source

FAQ’s for a Rose Prosecco and Watermelon Cocktail

 

Can I make this cocktail alcohol-free?

Absolutely.  Use an alcohol-free Prosecco, and lemonade or a lemon twist instead of Limoncello.

 

Can I prepare this drink ahead of time?

For best results mix all ingredients except for the Prosecco.  Refrigerate your mix, and add the bubbles to your spritzer at the last minute.

 

The mixture separated in the refrigerator, what should I do?

It is natural for fresh watermelon juice to separate in the refrigerator- just give it a good stir before pouring that fruity melon goodness in your garnished glasses.

 

Could I use watermelon ice cubes in this drink?

Yes- that is a beautiful way to serve this watermelon spritz cocktail.  If you are planning to use 1 or 2 cubes, you may want to reduce the watermelon puree in your mix by 1 oz per ice cube used.  Don’t overdo the watermelon ice cubes- and be sure the cubes will fit in the glasses you are planning to use for serving.

 

Can I add sugar or a simple syrup in this summer cocktail?

No need.  The Sparkling wine and natural watermelon adds enough sweetness.
