1/4 watermelon

600ml Soda water chilled

1/2 bottle Prosecco chilled

Juice of 2 limes

1/3 caster sugar

1/2 cup boiling water

Ice cubes

Mint leaves to garnish



1. Slice up some of the watermelon into small triangles for the garnish’s, these can be placed into the freezer a head of time.

2. Slice the remainder of the watermelon into rough cubes and place into a zip lock bag in the freezer for a few hours beforehand to chill.

3. Depending on how sweet your watermelon is and if you have a sweet tooth a sugar syrup may be needed. To make the syrup add the caster sugar and boiling water into a glass jug and stir to dissolve. Set-aside to cool down completely.

4. When you're ready to serve the spritz, blend the partially frozen watermelon cubes in batches in a blender to create a slushy consistency.

5. Pour the mixture into a large mixing jug or bowl along with the soda water, lime juice and cooled sugar syrup. Stir until well combined.

6. Add a few ice cubes to glasses, fill half full with the watermelon juice and top the remainder up with chilled Prosecco.

7. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a chilled sliced of watermelon on the side of the glass.
