Beat the heat with this cool Sparkling Watermelon Chiller.
This is such a simple drink to make – use up your leftover watermelon, add some sparkle with sparkling water, lemonade or seltzer and loads of ice for the chill. I usually make puréed fruit juices from fruit that is turning over ripe. I add some simple syrup and toss it in the freezer to use as sorbet, granita or for drinks like this. It adds a vibrant inviting colour and it’s a healthy alternative to sodas. Perfect for summer.
To make simple syrup – boil 1/2 cup of sugar with 3/4 cup of water. Allow to cool and place in the refrigerator until needed.
