Add a drinks station to your new Casa Bella Outdoor kitchen and have a Watermelon Cocktail

Here's the recipe:

Watermelon Mint Fizz

  • 2 cups diced watermelon (seeds removed)
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • Soda water
  • Ice cubes
  • Mint sprigs and watermelon slices (for garnish)


  1. In a blender, combine the diced watermelon, mint leaves, and lime juice. Blend until smooth.
  2. Place a fine-mesh sieve over a pitcher and strain the watermelon mixture into the pitcher, pressing down on the solids to extract as much juice as possible. Discard the solids.
  3. Add the vodka and simple syrup to the pitcher and stir well to combine.
  4. Fill serving glasses with ice cubes and pour the watermelon mixture into each glass, filling them about 3/4 full.
  5. Top off each glass with soda water, stirring gently.
  6. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of watermelon.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy your refreshing Watermelon Mint Fizz!

PRO TIP: If you prefer a non-alcoholic version, simply omit the vodka and increase the amount of soda water to suit your taste.

Cheers to a delightful summer cocktail!
