Summer is finally here
We’ve been dreaming of days spent by the pool, out on patios, in backyards, on rooftops with friends and a refreshing drink nearby. Aptly named Summer Juice, the inspiration behind this drink was essentially a low octane adult slushie combining hydrating fruits instead of ice cubes, campari for that apertivo bitterness, and Rosé aka #summerwater. The mint lends a herbaceous and refreshing touch plus a nice visual contrast. To compliment, the Insatiable founders collaborated on a Spotify playlist perfect for your sun soaked summer soirees. Enjoy!
2 cups watermelon, frozen and cubed
3/4 cups chilled rosé

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender for 3-4 minutes or until slushie consistency.
Divide between 1–4 glasses, no judgment here!). Serve in Champagne coupe or low ball glass.
