Ingredients

  • 10 oz. watermelon
  • 5 strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups sparkling water

Directions

Remove the seeds from watermelon, most of the blenders are not able to crush the seeds and they remain inside the cocktail. It will be easier to remove them before we begin.

Blend watermelon, strawberries and lemon juice in a blender. You may also 1/2 cup sugar in the blender but you may skip that if you hate calories.

Divide the mixture into 2 cups and then add sparkling water. You may serve it with lemon.
