Cocktail Recipe du Jour: Watermelon Mint Champagne Cocktail

Posted on September 16, 2015 by Miriam Zelinsky

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! Even though Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, we are still in full summer mode and in utter disbelief that summer flew by so quickly. So in celebration of continued warm September nights and dinners al fresco with friends and loved ones, I give you a super simple champagne cocktail that incorporates fresh watermelon and mint – two refreshing summer ingredients I'm not yet ready to retire. So move over, mimosa! This watermelon cocktail definitely deserves a spot in your next soirée.


What You'll Need:

A small watermelon

8-10 mint leaves


Prosecco or champagne (preferably dry)


What To Do:

1) Blend the watermelon and use a strainer to separate the solids away from the juice.

2) Fill a champagne flute about a 1/3 of the way with the watermelon juice (or to taste).

3) Add a squeeze of lime.

4) Top with champagne.

5) Garnish with a mint sprig and piece of watermelon.
