A Cooling Watermelon Cocktail Without Any Added Sugar (can be made with/without alcohol)

Watermelon Cocktail

Sorry men, this drink recipe is probably not one that you would enjoy adding to your repertoire. It doesn’t include beer or anything else that men stereotypically drink (kidding, I enjoy a good beer too). It’s also bright pink, fruity, and has kiwi ice cubes floating around in it. Manly? No, but delicious, yes. Who knows, (after getting past the pink-ness of this drink) maybe even a man couldn’t resist the combination of these fresh fruit flavors.

I was looking for a refreshing drink I could bring to my neighbor’s house for our girls night of catching up on life. Since she is having a baby,  I made mocktails. They even happened to pair wonderfully with the strawberry shortcake she made. These drinks were so cute that I nearly forgot I wasn’t drinking a cocktail.

The sweetness of the watermelon was cut by the tartness of the raspberries and lemon juice. The raspberries also gave the drink a beautiful dark pink hue, while the kiwi ice cubes added a pop of green and were a tasty snack after the drinks had been devoured. This watermelon cocktail is definitely a must-make for a night when you’re in need of a thirst-quenching drink that is full of flavor.

A Cooling Watermelon Cocktail:

*Makes 3-4 drinks


3 lemons, juiced

1 cup of frozen raspberries

1/4 of a large watermelon, cut into large chunks

*4 oz of vodka (optional)

1 kiwi, halved then sliced across

mint to garnish


Start off by peeling the kiwi. Then cut the kiwi in half and cut slices going across horizontally. Stick them on a small baking sheet and put it in the freezer. Let them freeze for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, add the lemon juice, raspberries, and watermelon to a food processor (or blender if yours is better than mine), as well as the vodka if you are making it a cocktail. Blend until the mixture is smooth. Pour the mixture into the glasses of your choice and add the kiwi ice cubes last. Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve immediately.
