Story
I try never to be without drink in hand for too long. Thanks to a certain show on HBO, it seems we all went through a fixation with a little drink called the Cosmopolitan, at least I did. This is a slight variation on that theme. It uses fresh watermelon and really is the perfect summer drink. For more recipes visit: www.chefdavidlawrence.com
For all those who drink a cocktail, cosmopolitan is always in their top list. This recipe video shows a watermelon cosmopolitan, which is a modification of the original drink with fresh watermelons. It sure looks refreshing and needless to say it would taste good with the freshness of watermelon. So look at the video to see how simple it is to make.
