Watermelon Lime Cooler
Make a pitcher of these refreshing watermelon lime coolers to serve on hot summer evenings. Want to turn it into an easy cocktail? Just add a shot of vodka, rum or tequila!
Servings: 6 servings
- 10 cups Seedless Watermelon cubes (about 1 small watermelon)
- 2 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
- 2 Tbsp Sugar (more or less, to taste)
- ½ cup Mint Leaves
- 3 cups Sparkling Water
- For Garnish: Watermelon slices and extra lime leaves (optional)
About 1 hour before serving, cube watermelon and freeze. (Using very cold / nearly frozen watermelon cubes is what gives this cooler a thicker texture and keeps it very cold while serving.)
Combine chilled watermelon cubes, lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a blender. Blend until smooth. Taste and add additional sugar if you'd like it sweeter.
Note: At this point you can refrigerate the watermelon puree for up to 3 hours.
Assemble coolers by filling 6 serving glasses with ice. Add watermelon puree to fill the glasses halfway. Add sparkling water to fill.
Garnish with watermelon wedges and extra mint leaves if you'd like!
