Strawberry Watermelon Slushie Spritzer

Okay, I had no idea what to call this.

It’s slushy, it’s spritzy, it’s refreshing and it is summer in a glass.

There is lime in it too but I thought adding that to the title might take it over the top?

Β I like it ’cause it is non-alcoholic. I went to a graduation open house with my husband and daughter Saturday and it was a hot, beautiful day. I watched as he drank an ice-cold beer and I drank a bottle of water. Ho-hum! Parties should be required to serve fun drink for pregnant ladies (and non-drinkers). It was a fun party regardless, though.

Strawberry Watermelon Slushy Spritzer
(for one)

1 heaping cup of chopped, seedless watermelon
1 heaping cup of frozen strawberries
1-2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (a good squeeze)
1/4 cup of sparkling water
ice cubes (optional)

1. Blend watermelon, strawberries, and lime juice in a blender until smooth.
2. Pour into a glass with ice (optional) and top with 1/4 cup sparkling water. Drink immediately, as it will separate as time goes by.

Note: All measurements are approximate. Don’t stress about it, it’s going to turn out great even if the measurements aren’t exact.

Verdict: Cold, refreshing, sweet, tangy, spritzy–perfection. Just what I needed on the hot day that I made it.
Husband’s take: I made this while he was at work one day but I’m sure he would have loved it.
Changes I would make: None!
Difficulty: Easy.

  1. This looks super fun! I love these flavours together πŸ™‚

  2. Love how refreshing this looks!

  3. Perfect! Fun fruity drinks around here always have to be non-acoholic…little curious boys are pretty good at stealthy drink sipping.

  4. What a beautiful drink. I’ll have to make this for my sister who is preggo too and totally feels your pain on being left out of the “fun beverage” department.

  5. What I love about serving a drink like this is that it’s perfect as is but a splash of vodka would also make it a cocktail. Makes everyone happy!

  6. i’m going to be dreaming of this all day now – it sounds amazing!

  7. I made something similar, and it was amazing. Mine didn’t have strawberries though, love that idea!

  8. This sounds like an absolutely perfect drink for a woman on a hot day, pregnant or otherwise. πŸ™‚ It’s lovely to look at!

  9. Anything with watermelon is good in my book. I’ll try this out, thanks!

  10. … and this will be served at the baby shower I’m planning. Thanks!! πŸ™‚

  20. Watermelon is SO summer, and I am so happy it’s all over the blogs right now. This seems like a lovely, refreshing drink!

  21. YUM! Where was this yummy idea last summer when I was pregnant watching everyone sip sangria and margs (my weakness) at our parties…

  22. Love it, so refreshing! I always have some non-alcoholic good stuff at parties. I’m not much on alcohol plus the kids need special drinks too. This one looks perfect.

  23. I live for slushes! I was addicted to 7-11 ones for a while there

  24. This sounds great Rachel. It’s such a shame there weren’t other drink options. I hate how it’s one extreme or the other at parties.

  25. Summer in a glass sounds absolutely perfect to me πŸ™‚ I love the slushy texture and all the fruit!

  26. This is fantastic. I am all for a boozy frozen slushy drink – but some days I just want the spritzy fruity slushy in a tall glass. Fabulouso m’dear!

  27. This is so pretty and summery! I love the colors and flavors. Beautiful presentation.

  28. My watermelon loving daughters would adore this drink! I think I’ll make it for the birthday party in July.

  32. This is so pretty, and I feel refreshed just staring at it!! Perfect non- bOozed up beverage for all my friends expecting lil babies soon but still deserve a fun sipper.

  33. Ooh… I love this! I’ve done my share of drinking water at get togethers while my hubby and friends are drinking beer, wine, and cocktails. I will have to make myself a fun drink now πŸ™‚

  34. Yep, Summer in a glass! YUM! BRAVO!

  35. Whenever I’m reaching for watermelon or strawberry chewy candies (my favorite things ever) I’m gonna make one of these instead. Much healthier & still has the same awesome flavors! YUMM!!!

  36. I know one thing – I’d call it plain good! Yum!

  37. This is such a lovely idea! There is always lots of watermelons and strawberries at my house during summer, so I will definitely be trying this out! Thanks for the wonderful recipe πŸ™‚
