1/4 cup watermelon juice

1/2  cup lime sparkling water

2 lime wedges

Handful of ice

A spring of mint (optional)

2. Squeeze the juice from one lime wedge into the juice.

Extra Tips

1. If you don’t have watermelon juice, add a cup of watermelon chunks and lime juice to a blender. Blend until smooth and add mint and lime sparkling water.

2. You can add a teaspoon or two of sweetener if you’d like, but if you have a sweet watermelon you really don’t need to. 

3. This is a great opportunity to use a sugar rimmed glass!
