4th of July Recipe: Watermelon Sparkler (Spiked or not?)

4th of July Recipes with Sugar Loco

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)

Watermelon Sparkler

Ingredients:

Watermelon Juice

Sparkling Water or Diet Lemon-Lime Soda

Vodka (Optional)

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
