Watermelon Basil Sparklers How-To

With the holidays coming up, I wanted to craft a fun and different cocktail. During the winter months, I feel we focus too much on heavy ingredients for our food and drinks: cream, cranberry, lots of butter, etc…  So I wanted to make a cocktail that would be light and refreshing, as well as able to cleanse our palates between meals. Introducing the Watermelon Basil Sparkler.

You will need:


To make:

  1. Dip the rim of the champagne flute into the agave syrup until entire rim is coated.  Then dip into the gold sprinkling sugar.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  You can prepare this ahead of time and refrigerate it if you want!
  2. Pour 1 part Tropicana Watermelon Juice to 2 parts champagne.  Garnish with basil leaf.
  3. Sip and enjoy!!

I am loving this Tropicana Watermelon as a mixer! It’s so delicious and light. I know I’ll be using it a lot this summer for fun cocktails, like margaritas and watermelon martinis. I am such a fan of these Watermelon Sparklers!

I remember Thanksgiving of last year, my stomach was SO over all of the heavy food and drinks. I felt like a ton of bricks for days. Which is why I am making these delicious concoctions this year to lighten up the Thanksgiving and Christmas fare. I can’t wait for everyone to try them!

    Yumm these sound great! I love anything watermelon and my girlfriends and I are always making spritzers or juice mimosas, so this would be a great idea for our holiday party 🙂
