This WATERMELON FIZZ COCKTAIL is the perfect afternoon treat for a warm summer day!
How many times has this happened: You head to the kitchen with a taste for “something”. You open the fridge, move a few things around, and then find that one ingredient that in turn inspires you to create something amazing. This Watermelon Fizz cocktail came together thanks to one big, juicy watermelon!
The ingredient list for this cocktail is short and the method is straightforward, so I know you’ll be able to prepare it in no time. Ultimately I think this cocktail is about two things: taste and colour.
Here are some suggestions to assist when you make this at the cottage or at home:
1) Use a seedless watermelon.
2) Before juicing your melon, take a melon baller and extract maybe two dozen small balls to be used later as garnish.
3) Process the melon using a professional juicer if you have one. If you don’t, process the melon using a blender, or mash through a fine sieve.
One final thought on this cocktail is which spirit to use. I found that gin produced the most distinct taste but we also made the recipe with vodka, and that was delicious too! Feel free to experiment!
