Recipe: Watermelon Ginger Cocktail

Watermelon was on sale at my fruit & veggie shop recently so I found myself with a rather large one so whipped up this watermelon ginger cocktail! It’s refreshing, delicious and was the perfect accompaniment to a BBQ I was having!

I love that because watermelon is so naturally sweet there’s no need to add any sugar syrup into the mix. It’s fizzy, fruity and oh so tasty! I tend to half fill the glass with the watermelon juice before topping with ginger beer, but you can play around with the quantities to suit your tastes. The zesty lime is a pretty excellent addition as well! I highly recommend you give this watermelon ginger cocktail a try for yourself!
