Cool down with a refreshing cocktail made from fruit sold at the Crescent City Farmers Market. Combine fresh watermelon with your favorite champagne or sparkling wine, and voila!
Blend the watermelon chunks with the orange juice until you have a smooth mix. Taste and add sugar/honey if needed. Strain the watermelon orange mix (not required, but recommended). Chill the watermelon orange mix in the refrigerator until ready to prepare the drinks. Pour the watermelon orange mix into champagne flutes, about half full. Add the champagne or other sparkling wine, pouring it gently to avoid from making a bubbly mess. Stir gently and garnish with a fresh sprig of mint.
