Watermelon Lime Fizz

    10 minutes

    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 champagne cocktail is not too alcoholic and great to serve at a barbie. It's best if you can chill the watermelon overnight.

    Made it more kid friendly. I changed the champagne/white wine to Sparkling White Grape Juice  -  12 May 2010

    Can you use sparkling water instead of alcohol?  -  11 May 2010

    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  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
