  • 2 oz. fresh watermelon juice
  • ½ fresh lime, juiced
  • 2 oz. sparkling water
  • Lime slice, garnish
  • Mint sprig, garnish

If making as a cocktail, add:

  • 1 ½  oz. excellent vodka
  • ½ oz. Cointreau or Grand Marnier, optional



To make watermelon juice, just blend the pulp from the other half of the seedless watermelon left over from the salad. 2 cups of pulp makes almost 2 cups of juice. If you love mint, feel free to pulse a few leaves with the watermelon in the blender, then strain (if desired) and serve over ice with sprig of mint and a lime slice for a refreshing cooler on a hot summer day.
