Downtown Palm Springs Restaurant Beats the Heat with Wine and Watermelon

Scorching temps are certainly upon us, and what better way to cool off than with a specialty cocktail?
At Rio Azul Mexican Bar & Grill in downtown Palm Springs, bartenders use only the freshest ingredients available, perfect for mixing cool summer-inspired drinks.
My new favorite combines two irresistible ingredients: watermelon and wine. The end result is crisp, refreshing, and hard to pass up:

I also tried the Paloma, a formidable concoction that melds tequila and grapefruit juice into an icy delight.
So next time you find yourself sweating it out downtown, step inside Rio Azul for a few sips that are sure to carry you away to cooler climes.
