Notes

*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.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup ice
  • 1/3 Cup fresh watermelon juice
  • 3/4 Cups sparkling water*

Directions

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!

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.
