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!
