It’s a tasty drink that won’t make you tipsy. And it’s made with the perfect summer fruit. Angie Chaplin shows us how to make a marvelous mocktail.
Here is her recipe:
Watermelon Ginger Fizz: Low-sugar sweetness of the watermelon with the bite of the ginger is one of the most fantastic warm-weather flavor combinations.
4 c seedless watermelon (cubed)
16 mint sprigs (plus extra for garnish)
1 lime (quartered)
¼ c simple syrup
12 oz club soda or lime sparkling water
12 oz ginger beer
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. 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. Garnish with extra watermelon, mint and lime to serve.
