Watermelon Fizz Mocktail

  • Author: Shannon
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Total Time: 10
  • Yield: 2-4

Ingredients

Watermelon Fizz Mocktail

  • ~2.5 lbs seedless watermelon (1/2 of a mini “personal” watermelon)
  • 1 lime
  • 1 cup mint leaves, loosely packed (plus extra for garnish)
  • generous splash of kombucha or sparkling water (experiment with flavors!)

For Serving

  • crushed ice
  • watermelon slices for garnish
  • mint sprigs and/or edible flowers for garnish

Instructions

Centrifugal Juicer Method

  1. Cut the watermelon into medium-sized pieces (carefully removing the rind). Cut the peel away from the lime.
  2. Add about half of the watermelon to the juicer*, then the mint, followed by the lime and the rest of the watermelon (collecting the juice in a pitcher). Set the watermelon juice aside. (If you wish to strain any remaining pulp, use a fine mesh sieve to do so before pouring your watermelon juice into glasses.)
  3. Add crushed ice to your glasses. Pour 2-4 ounces of watermelon juice in each glass. Top with kombucha or sparkling water. Garnish as desired and serve. Cheers!

Blender Method

  1. Cut the watermelon into medium-sized pieces (carefully removing the rind). Add the watermelon pieces and mint leaves to a powerful, high-speed blender. Whirl away for about a minute or so, or until watermelon is completely smooth and juicy. Strain the juice through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher to remove any undesired pulp and/or mint leaves.
  2. Roll the lime against the countertop a few times (to help prime it for juicing) and then cut it in half. Use a wooden reamer, citrus squeezer, hand juicer (or your hands), to squeeze lime juice into the pitcher. Give the watermelon juice a stir with a large wooden spoon or spatula.
  3. Add crushed ice to your glasses. Pour 2-4 ounces of watermelon juice in each glass. Top with kombucha or sparkling water. Garnish as desired and serve. Cheers!

Notes

  • *A masticating juicer or cold-pressed juicer should work comparably here. 
  • Watermelon juice yield will vary depending on the size of your watermelon.
  • Kombucha in its purest form is unpasteurized and contains trace amounts of alcohol (typically less than one percent). Pregnant and breastfeeding women may wish to consult with a qualified health care provider prior to consuming.
