Watermelon Cooler Recipe

Come Party With Me: Fourth of July — Drinks

When it comes to Summer drinks, I love to use watermelon. The juicy fruit is 92 percent water — meaning it's pretty easy to puree, strain, and drink. It tastes wonderful on its own, fresh from the blender, or works well in a cocktail.

This recipe combines watermelon puree with white grape juice, lime juice, and club soda. It's refreshing, fruity, delicious, and can be served to kids. For an adult version, add a splash of vodka or gin. To offer this concoction at your Fourth of July barbecue, get the recipe now.

Ingredients

3 cups coarsely chopped seeded watermelon
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves
2 cups white grape juice
1 tsp. finely shredded lime peel
3/4 cup fresh lime juice, chilled
32 oz. (4 cups) club soda, chilled
Fresh mint sprigs (optional)
Watermelon wedges or balls (optional)

Directions

  1. Place watermelon in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend until smooth. Strain watermelon puree through a fine mesh sieve; discard pulp.

  3. Add grape juice, lime peel, lime juice, and watermelon puree, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Stir in club soda.
  4. Serve in glasses over ice. If desired, garnish with mint sprigs and watermelon wedges or balls. Serve immediately.
