Meet the Doris Day - Tuesday 8/5/2008
It's quite possible that someone else has come up with this refreshing beverage and has named it something else. But since I've been on a celebrity-named beverage kick on an online community, when I was making this the name just popped into my mind.
This is a very loose recipe...
For one glass:
Cut sweet watermelon into 1/2 inch cubes (about 2/3 of a cup per glass)
Put into 6-8 ounce wineglass
Pour in enough chardonnay or Riesling to cover the watermelon
Crush some of the watermelon against the side of the glass with a fork, and add any watermelon juice that escaped onto your cutting board.
Wait about 10-15 minutes for the wine to infuse into the melon. Drink and fish out the watermelon (with a spoon or fork, please) in a way that works for you without dismaying your friends.
Best enjoyed sitting on a front porch. Back porch, patio, balcony or open window will also work.
