Watermelon fizz

Fancy enough to serve at your next cocktail or dinner party, but simple enough for a refreshing drink at the end of a hot day, this mocktail is a summer favorite. 

Ingredients

  • 5 cups fresh watermelon, roughly chopped, plus wedges for garnishing
  • 3 cups fresh limeade, plus more to taste
  • 1 cup sparkling water

Directions

Purée the watermelon in a blender. Strain juice through a sieve to remove any pulp. This will keep your drink from separating in the glass or pitcher. Mix in limeade, adding more to taste if necessary. Pour into your favorite pitcher and chill. Add sparkling water just before serving and garnish with a watermelon wedge.

Watermelon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Watermelon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
