Watermelon is one of my favorites and it screams summertime as a snack but how about in a drink/cocktail?? Yes, please!
A sweet cocktail typically isn’t my first choice, but sometimes I am in the mood for a little sweet and this is fresh and delish without tasting like a hangover waiting to happen (aka too sweet).
Watermelon Champagne Cocktail
- Chopped Watermelon
- Mint (a bunch)
I will tell you, this cocktail I don’t use exact measurements (don’t hate me, it’s more about eyeballing).
In a cocktail shaker, add a few chunks of watermelon to the shaker (for 2 I would add about 1/2 cup of chopped watermelon). Add 3-4 sprigs of mint and pour in lemonade (note: add about 1/4 cup of lemonade); Muddle. It will become an AMAZING smelling watermelon/lemonade/mint juice #yourewelcome
Strain into your martini glass or champagne coupe and top with your champagne of choice and garnish with a sprig of mint.
*note: when you add the champagne it will get foamy – don’t be alarmed lol
And that’s it! Super simple, super summery, supper good! This would be perfect to serve all season long, especially for the 4th, a picnic, BBQ, anything – just try it.
