Blend frozen watermelon and watermelon juice until the mixture is slushy. Divide watermelon slush between 2 glasses. Top with Proseco or sparking wine. Garnish with a watermelon cube. Sip, slurp and enjoy.
NOTES, TIPS & TRICKS: Substitute lemon, lime or your fav juice for watermelon juice if you like. The juice is just needed to provide liquid so that the frozen watermelon will blend. A couple of chilled watermelon cubes may also be used to blend with the cubed melon.
Plan ahead, when you cut up your melon, keep a batch of cubed melon in the fridge so you can whip up this cocktail on demand.
