Its Summer at last and its hotter than anything outside. So why not cool off with one of these Freixenet cocktails!

Few things shout out the coming of summer quite like the arrival of watermelon at your local supermarket. Refreshing and delicious, it’s the perfect fruit to eat by the pool and why not try experimenting with in your cocktails. Cool down this summer by the pool with Freixenet’s Sweet Sparkling Watermelon, featuring Freixenet Sweet Cuvée Cava.

Sweet Cuvee Watermelon

Ingredients:
1 watermelon
1 bottle of Freixenet Sweet Cuvée Cava

 

Instructions:
Cut 1/4th off the top off a seedless watermelon. Scoop out the fruit and purée. Put 2 tbsp in a wine glass, and top off with Freixenet Sweet Cuvée Cava. Pour the remaining purée back in the hollow watermelon to enjoy throughout the day.

nce July is upon us, the sun becomes our BFF and our worst enemy. Cool down with a refreshing cocktail that will help you escape the brutal heat while revitalizing your palate:  Freixenet’s Sparkling Sorbet, featuring the favorite Cordon Negro Brut. Freixenet Brut is extremely versatile and boasts a palate of apple, pear and bright citrus, making it an easy complement to most ingredients.
