I am in love with summer spritzers. This particular batch may have been first served to my nieces, then ended up spiked with a little organic vodka and consumed while pulling weeds. Yep. Versatile and delicious. Seriously, watermelon is my favorite summer flavor.
- 1 small to medium sized watermelon
- 1 honeydew melon
- 2 lemons, juiced
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1-2 cups water
- Sparkling water (I used LaCroix Pina Fresca flavor, my fave)
Blend in blender in batches, keeping sparkling water aside – I often do two batches and split the regular water between the two. Or use a juicer, if you’ve got one.
Pour through mesh strainer into a pitcher. It make take a while to strain through, sometimes, I use a rubber spatula to help push it through. Once you’ve extracted all the juice, add a can of sparkling water. Serve with lemon or lime slices and enjoy.
