Summer is almost upon us in the UK, so we’ve teamed up with Sainsbury's to create a gorgeous summer cocktail you can make to impress friends and family.

Our Watermelon Frosé is made using Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference Côtes de Provence Rosé, a 100% vegan wine which is so light and delicious - and available for only £12.

You may not be aware that not all wines are vegan - however Sainsbury’s have a well-curated selection, so get yourself to the wine aisle during your next big shop to find out what’s on offer.

Before you start

  • Freeze the watermelon chunks, strawberries and raspberries overnight.

Prepare the sugar rim

  • Squeeze the lime juice into one bowl.
  • Place the sugar into another bowl.
  • Roll the rim of the martini glasses in the lime juice first, before rolling in the sugar bowl to create a nice sugar rim.
