This summer we’ve been inspired to create more yummy non-alcoholic drinkables, especially with such an abundance of delicious seasonal fruits! Fruit-forward mocktails are a great substitute for the usual summer cocktails — so if you choose not to drink alcohol you can still get excited about other options.
Sometimes when you’re cleansing and everyone else around you is drinking wine, beer and margaritas, you need to have your own special tonic. And sometimes you just want a cold, fruity drink to help you beat the heat!
We hope this Watermelon Summer Spritzer does that for you. It’s cooling, hydrating, thirst-quenching and delightfully sweet!
Enjoy and please let us know what you think of it in the comment section below. We love hearing from you.
With love and watermelon kisses,

Watermelon Summer Spritzer

Pour watermelon juice into carafe and top with sparkling mineral water. Stir with a long spoon to combine all the flavors. Serve in a wine glass filled with ice. Top each glass with two melon balls and enjoy.
