Looking for a new Summer cocktail? I’d love to suggest my Watermelon Ginger Fizz. The sweetness of the watermelon with the bite of the ginger is one of the most fantastic warm-weather flavor combinations. And, if you’re growing mint, I’m pretty sure it is taking over your garden. Why not throw it in a cocktail or four?

Servings: 4

Ingredients
 

  • 4 c seedless watermelon (cubed)
  • 16 mint sprigs (plus extra for garnish)
  • 1 lime (quartered)
  • ¼ c simple syrup
  • 4 oz gin (or more)
  • 12 oz club soda
  • 12 oz ginger beer (bottle)

Instructions
 

  • Place watermelon, mint leaves, lime wedges and simple syrup in a tall pitcher.
  • Using the back of a wooden spoon, muddle the ingredients together helping release juices in the lime and natural oils in the mint.
  • Add gin and stir.
  • Fill 4 tall glasses with ice and pour watermelon mixture about 3/4 of the way to the top.
  • Add a splash of club soda and ginger beer to each glass and stir once.
  • Check for sweetness – add more simple syrup if needed.
  • Garnish with extra watermelon, mint and lime to serve.

Notes

*Simple syrup is simply equal parts sugar and water heated in pan until sugar dissolves. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week. Add to lemonade, iced tea or cocktails.
**Ginger beer is non-alcoholic. Look for it in any specialty wine or liquor store. Tastes great in a mocktail but also pairs well with gin.
***Watching your waistline? Skip the alcohol and add stevia in lieu of simple syrup. Save your calories for the splash of ginger beer. Trust me on this one.
