Rosé Watermelon Basil Smash

Servings 5 servings


  • 1 bottle of your rosé of choice*
  • Fresh watermelon, cut into cubes (I bought it pre-sliced at TJs and cubed it from there)
  • Seltzer or club soda
  • Basil
  • Ice, if desired


  1. In a glass, combine approximately 4oz rosé with 2oz seltzer. Adjust proportions accordingly depending on the size of your glass, to taste, or for strength.

  2. Add watermelon and a couple leaves of basil to each glass. For stronger watermelon flavor, use a spoon or muddler to slightly break the fruit chunks down. Chill or add a few ice cubes before serving.

Recipe Notes

I used Le Ferme Julien from Trader Joe’s…inexpensive and so good

P.S. Frozen watermelon chunks make great ice cubes, too!
