Watermelon Spritzers

Happy 4th of July! Blueberry Yogurt Waffles are on our breakfast menu and then we are going to the neighborhood parade. After that, we are headed to our friend’s house for a pool party and barbecue. It should be a fun filled day!

If you are looking for an easy and refreshing drink to serve at your 4th of July party, make these Watermelon Spritzers. Don’t worry, they are super easy to make. There are only 5 ingredients involved! These no-fuss drinks are fun to serve and sip on!

Juicy watermelon is pureed and sweetened with honey and lemon. To finish the drink off, add a splash of fizzy seltzer water and garnish with fresh mint. The Watermelon Spritzers are pretty and will quench your thirst on a hot summer day! Grab a drink and sit by the pool, chill in the hammock, or relax on the patio. Cheers!

We hope you all have a wonderful holiday! Happy 4th of July!

    WHAT a clever idea and they must have been fun to make too!

    I’ve rustled up patriotic oreos – oreos dipped in white chocolate and covered in funfetti. I know, wicked. But terribly good!

    Watermelon and mint is the perfect combination! This drink looks amazing, and I’d love to have some today for the 4th :)

    Wow. That drink looks good for any day, even for the loads of people who don’t celebrate the 4th of July. Did you know only one country out of many celebrates this day, yet still most of the people who do celebrate it send good wishes to everyone as if we all celebrate it haha (makes me happy to be in Italy today). Anyway, thanks for sharing these recipes. For those who do celebrate the 4th of July, I wish you a happy one!

    Your site is behaving very strangely today. It starts to open a normal size on my iPad, then every few seconds it shifts and flashes reducing in size and moving to the left of the screen until it is so small, about 2inches wide on the left side of the screen with the rest of the screen blank. I can’t even read what I am typing here.

      Sorry for the trouble Ruth! We are looking into the issue now. Thanks for your patience.

    My husband is alright with watermelon flavored foods, but not watermelon plain…I’m always searching for a new use, and I love this one!

    Delish! My friend actually made a very similar drink on 4th of July, so I imagine this is super yummy too. :)

    We made these yesterday… So refreshing! Great way to use up some of that left over melon I always have after buying one that is much to large for my family to eat!

    I purchased a watermelon, it was 16 lbs though. What if you don’t have a kitchen scale about how much watermelon would you say would you use to equal the 2 1/2 lbs? Can’t wait to try!!!
