The Last Slice of Watermelon, the End of Summer

Tonight, after dinner, I sadly cut the last slices of ‘cocomero’ (watermelon) that were left in the refrigerator. I knew this meant that the end of summer is here and soon we will be leaving the country house  to open up our  ‘pied a terre’ in the city.
Watermelon is one of my favorite flavors of summer. But this year it was almost a required fruit to eat to  beat the extreme temperatures in Italy..nothing refreshes more than a cool slice of favorite souvenir of this year’s watermelons is a cool drink that is made with watermelon, white melon and Prosecco-or you can have it without alcohol.

Just puree approximately 1 cup of the fruit of a watermelon, then puree 1/2 cup of a white melon.  Divide evenly into serving cocktail glasses, add in a spritz of Prosecco, a slice of fresh pineapple!

Join me here in Italy on the Luxury culinary cruise that will be leaving from Venice in May 2012. It is all inclusive and will include even your airfare from whatever city in the world you depart from to Venice and back. Only a few spots left, email
