When the warm weather months arrive, there’s nothing more delicious than bright red, chilled, freshly chopped watermelon!  So juicy and sweet… YUM. Honestly, I never get tired of it!

Why this Recipe Works:

  • This cocktail is crazy easy to make, so fun to drink, and, the most stunning red color.
  • It’s absolutely perfect for warm weather get togethers with friends and family. I personally love to serve this cocktail at summer BBQs and on the 4th of July!
  • The champagne and watermelon combination can’t be beat. You’ll also gets loads of nutrients from that watermelon. Yay for healthy cocktails!
  • If you have leftover champagne or watermelon, this is the perfect way to use it up.

How to Make Watermelon Champagne Cocktails:

1. Add your watermelon to a blender and blend on high until the fruit is completely liquified.

2. Then to each glass, add roughly 6 ice cubes and then a 1/2 cup ( 6 oz.) of each champagne and watermelon juice. Add 2 -3 watermelon cubes to the glass if you like, as well. I think it adds a nice little touch!

FYI – if you’d like to make this into one large batch so you can “fix it and forget it” as they say, simply add all of the watermelon juice and the champagne to a punch bowl or large pitcher! Just be sure to keep the ice cubes on the side so the mixture doesn’t get watered down.

3. If you’re feeling super fancy, garnish your glasses with small watermelon wedges and colorful straws. So fun!
