Minty Watermelon Strawberry Refresher
This refreshing drink filled with fresh watermelon and strawberries can be made into a mocktail OR cocktail. The perfect sipper for spring and summer occasions!
Servings: 4 servings
- 8 cups cubed watermelon (about 1 baby watermelon)
- 3 cups hulled strawberries
- Juice of 1 lime
- 10-12 fresh mint leaves
- 2 cups chilled club soda or sparkling wine
Combine watermelon and strawberries in a blender and puree until no chunks remain.
Place a fine mesh sieve over a wide-mouthed pitcher and, in batches, slowly pour the watermelon mixture through to strain. To speed up the process, use a pestle or some other utensil to help push the mixture through the sieve more quickly. It took me about 4 sieve-fuls to get through the entire batch of juice from the blender.
Remove sieve from pitcher and add lime juice and mint leaves. Stir to combine and refrigerate for at least a half hour. Add chilled club soda or sparkling wine right before serving. Serve over ice or neat, up to you!
