  • 16 appetizer skewers (cocktail picks)


Sweet and Spicy White Wine Reduction:


  • 16 cherry tomatoes
  • 32 basil leaves
  • 2 slices watermelon cut into 1-inch cubes (you'll need 16 cubes for this recipe)
  • 8 oz feta cut into 16 cubes


  • For the white wine reduction, add all ingredients to a small skillet over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook until it’s reduced to about 2 tablespoons, about 7 to 10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and then cool to room temperature.
  • For the skewers, thread a cherry tomato onto a skewer, and then a basil leaf, feta cube, basil leaf, and then watermelon cube. Repeat until you have 16 skewers.
  • Right before serving, drizzle the white wine reduction on top.


  • This recipe makes 16 skewers; each serving is 2 skewers for a total of 8 servings.
  • Dry White Wine: If you don’t use wine, you can use white grape juice instead and omit the sugar. Or to save time, just use balsamic glaze instead.
  • Store these in an airtight food storage container in the fridge for up to 1 day. Wait to drizzle the white wine reduction on top until right before you want to serve them.
