Easy Sparkling Watermelon Cocktails

  • Author: Nikki Cervone

  • Yield: 4 drinks 1x


Light and bubbly, our sparkling watermelon cocktail is an easy, made-from-scratch beverage to sip on all summer long.


  • 2 cups cubed watermelon, chilled (about 12 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice, chilled
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup or light agave nectar
  • 1 bottle sweet prosecco (750 mL), chilled
  • Ice cubes, for serving
  • Small watermelon cubes or wedges, for garnish (optional)


  1. Place the cubed watermelon, lemon juice, and simple syrup or agave nectar into a blender. Process at a high speed until completely smooth, about 10 seconds.
  2. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a large pitcher, using a spoon to lightly press down on any solids. This will yield about 1 cup of liquid. Dispose of the solids.
  3. Fill 4 glasses with ice. Pour the watermelon juice into each glass over the ice, divided evenly. Slowly pour the prosecco over the watermelon juice to top off each glass.
  4. Garnish each rim with a watermelon wedge, if using. Serve immediately.
