Thinking about the weekend, I really wanted to put together something refreshing and light because I absolutely love day drinking but want to make sure I last the entire evening also. This Kiwi Watermelon Bramble is perfect with fresh, “healthy” ingredients that everyone will love. It also works well without any booze at all so if some people aren’t drinking they don’t have to miss out entirely. The addition of the agave syrup from Monin was to give a great earthy flavor, which balances out all of the fresh fruit and citrus notes.
