Freixenet Sandia Cordon Negro

Freixenet Sandia Cordon Negro

The Freixenet Sandia (watermelon in Spanish) Cordon Negro takes the watermelon martini as its inspiration, which evokes a feeling of alfresco summer drinking. The hint of vanilla adds a new dimension and the squeeze of lime counters the sweetness. This works really well with the Cordon Negro, which has nuances of Mediterranean fruits, particularly melon.
