If you’ve been following our 4th of July Treats with Sugar Loco features you’ll know my obsession for Berries and Watermelon. Particularly Watermelon as I am so in love with the crisp and refreshing tastes it brings to the hot summer days. Tikkido shares with us today their refreshing RED Watermelon Sparkler that I honestly feel would be such a hit for a 4th of July party, especially with the little Watermelon Star cut-outs! So super cute! (You can make it spiked or not depending on the party)
Sparkling Water or Diet Lemon-Lime Soda
Simply save some of that fabulously pink fruit juice the next time you carve a watermelon. (If you want to make these for a crowd, use a blender to liquify the watermelon, then run the juice through a fine mesh strainer.)
Pour a few inches of the watermelon juice in the bottom of a glass. Fill the rest of the glass with either sparkling water or diet lemon-lime soda. If you’re very careful as you pour the sugar-free clear beverage in the glass, you’ll get this gorgeous ombre effect thanks to the different densities of the liquids.
For the grown-ups, these are absolutely amazing spiked with vodka. Or made with proseco instead of the sparkling water.
Directions for: star-shaped watermelon ice cubes
