Ingredients

  • 5 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • 1 cup water
  • agave (or sweetener of choice) to taste
  • 40 mint leaves (10 per serving)
  • 1 lime
  • 4 bottles of Topo Chico (or other original flavored sparkling water of choice)

Instructions

  • This recipe works if you serveĀ each of the glasses individually to maintain the drink bubbly.
  • Blend chopped watermelon with water until smooth.
  • Taste and add sweetener of your choice, I prefer agave syrup for sweetness. Blend again.
  • In a tall glass, add in 10 mint leaves. Use the back of a spoon to muddle the mint leaves slightly. Add ice.
  • Squeeze 1/4 of the lime into the glass and add 1 cup of the watermelon juice.
  • Mix to combine.
  • Top off the glass with sparkling water (about 1/2 cup).
  • Repeat same process for each individual serving with the remaining watermelon juice.

Notes

  • Make this a cocktail by adding a shot of tequila to each serving.
