Done cutting your watermelon and wondering what to do with all of the juice? Look no further than Tikkido's Watermelon Sparkler! For kids, mix the juice with sparkling water or diet lemon-lime soda. For adults, use prosecco. Top the beautiful pink drink with a paper umbrella, or throw in some ice cubes with frozen berries inside for beautiful presentation. For a crowd, just blend up the watermelon itself, straining the liquid through a fine mesh strainer.
*Feel free to use any beverage of your choice as a substitute for sparkling water, for example diet lemon-lime soda or turn it into a cocktail with prosecco.
**To make these for a large crowd, blend watermelon cubes. Strain with a fine mesh strainer, collecting the juice in a bowl. Use the proportion of 1 part juice to 3 parts added beverage.
- 1 Cup ice
- 1/3 Cup fresh watermelon juice
- 3/4 Cups sparkling water*
Collect juice leftover from cutting a watermelon. Pour a few inches into a tall glass of ice.**
Carefully fill the rest of the glass with sparkling water. If done slowly and carefully, the drink should have an ombre color.
Top with umbrella or another garnish and enjoy!
