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.

One day recently I thought to myself, why not take this amazing fruit and use it as the star ingredient in a cool and refreshing Watermelon Champagne Cocktail?!  So, that’s what I did. This is truly an amazing drink – try it and see for yourself! You deserve it.

Why this Recipe Works:

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 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!
