This 🍓 Strawberry Watermelon Drink is the best slushy refresher you will have this summer. Alcohol is totally optional (but oh so good). If you’re making this a 🍹 cocktail, I recommend using vodka, tequila, or even rum but use whatever you like best. This drink is so easy to prep and so bright and 💦 refreshing, there’s no way that the whole family wouldn’t enjoy a big batch of this on the table.

Why You’ll Love this Strawberry Watermelon Drink

Did I mention this 🍉 Strawberry Watermelon Drink is the ultimate quencher? Watermelon is so naturally hydrating, and it’s nice and sweet with the addition of frozen 🍓 strawberries. If you want this drink to be on the slushier side (like a granita), simply add more frozen strawberries or even a few ice cubes. The lime juice adds a great brightness and the splash of 🫧 bubbly makes this sparkly and fun to drink. Make a big batch and serve it at your next BBQ, you’re guests will love it!

How to Prepare this Strawberry Watermelon Drink

🍉 Using a sharp knife, peel and cut up 3 or 4 pieces of ripe watermelon and then add to your blender.

❇️ Next, add the juice of 1/2 a lime to the blender.

🍓 Now, add 1 cup of frozen strawberries.

💦 Then add a splash of sparkling water.

🌀 Finally, blend everything together and enjoy!

Nonna’s Tip 🍉

Keep in mind: the riper the watermelon, the sweeter your drink will be!
