Strawberry Watermelon Slushie Spritzer
Strawberry watermelon slushie is an easy and refreshing summer spritzer, with a cocktail option.
Juicy strawberries and watermelon, with a touch of lime and a spritz of sparkling water, blended into an icy refreshing drink. It’s slushy, it’s spritzy, it’s refreshing and it is summer in a glass.
It’s a great tasting drink that is non-alcoholic. Great for those of us who happen to not be drinking alcohol for one reason or another.
Recently I went to a graduation open house with my husband and daughter, 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 drinks for pregnant ladies (and non-drinkers), don’t you think?
This strawberry watermelon spritzer won’t leave you longing for an ice-cold beer or a vodka lemonade. It has plenty of refreshing flavor!
PS If you want, add a shot of vodka to your spritzer to make a cocktail. Totally up to you! Or try frosé, a frozen rosé slushie.
Make it your own
There are lots of ways to vary this drink.
- Make a double or triple batch. Why not, you already have the blender out?
- Add ice when blending for a slushier drink.
- Use frozen blueberries, peaches, mango or another fruit of your choice instead of the strawberries. Substitute a different fruit for the watermelon.
- Add a flavored sparkling water drink, like LaCroix or Bubly. There are lots of options that are really popular right now.
- Instead of lime juice, add a squirt of lemon juice.
- Like it sweeter? Add simple syrup, agave, or sugar. Or use 7-up or a different lemon-lime soda instead of the sparkling water.
Cool off with more summer drinks!
