I love watermelon in the summer, it is the perfect snack for a hot, sunny day. I was inspired to make my favourite summer snack into a cocktail. This sweet, fresh, pink hued cocktail has all the sparkle and zing that would please your guests at a summer bbq!
This was the winning recipe in our Summer 2009 cocktail competition. Congrats!
Altered ingredient amounts. i actually didn't use sugar syrup b/c my watermelon was already quite sweet. however, i could see how if your watermelon wasn't very ripe or flavourful how it might need just a touch of syrup. - 21 Aug 2009
this was a really delicious and refreshing cocktail. i love champagne cocktails, and this was a nice change from a bellini or kir royale. it looked so pretty, too, esp since my watermelon was a nice deep red colour. i'd make this again in a heartbeat! - 21 Aug 2009
Made it more kid friendly. I changed the champagne/white wine to Sparkling White Grape Juice - 12 May 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
