A Summertime Cocktail Hour









I've always been a big fan of picnics, some of my friends even refer to my entire aesthetic as "always ready for a picnic." No matter what you're eating there's something so special about grabbing your favorite picnic blanket and spreading out in a bed of grass. 

Though I've had picnics for years, I've added a new addition this past year...cocktails! In the photo above I invited my sweet friend Donyea over for a strawberry watermelon infused rose and a little charcuterie board. We had the best time sprawling out and indulging in the perfect summertime drink.

The cocktail was super easy to make, so I thought I'd share the recipe with y'all! And guess what? If reading isn't your thing, there will be an IGTV video of the recipe too! I absolutely love whipping up fun food and drink items, and I can't wait to show y'all more of what I've been cooking. 

Strawberry Watermelon Infused Rose

Ingredients: 
1/2 cup fresh or frozen watermelon
1 cup fresh strawberry 
1/3 cup fresh mint. 
1 bottle of sparkling rose 
1 bottle of still rose.

Directions: 
1. Chop all fruit into small pieces, ideally the smaller the better. 
2. Pull your mint springs from their stems.
3. Combine both types of rose in a large pitcher.
4. Add in your fruit and stir into your rose mixture.
5. Add in your mint.
6. Allow fruit to infuse in the fridge for at least one hour.

I hope y'all enjoyed this fun picnic inspiration and cocktail recipe! 

Until Next Time,
Autumn
