Description

If you are looking for a fun, non-alcoholic alternative this summer, this light and refreshing mocktail is for you!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups Watermelon – you will want to get the juiciest, most ripe one you can find so that the juice is full bodied. Use the darkest meat for your mocktail.
  • 46 Mint leaves
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Tablespoon Club Soda
  • Optional: Honey
  • Optional: vodka (1/2 shot per drink)

Instructions

  1. Roughly chop up 2 -3 cups of dark watermelon meat; try to remove as many seeds as possible.
  2. Add to blender along with 2-3 mint leaves.
  3. Blend until fully liquid.
  4. Taste and, if you want it to be sweeter, add a little bit of honey at a time until you have reached your desired sweetness.
  5. optional: you can strain the watermelon at this point to ensure you just get straight juice, but you don’t have to.
  6. Take cocktail glass and add 3 cubes of watermelon (about 1×1 inch) as well as several ice cubes.
  7. Pour watermelon mixture over top, leaving about 1/2 inch or more at the top
  8. Add a splash of club soda or other sparking water.
  9. Garnish with additional mint leaves and a slice of lime.
