Watermelon Spritzer

Super refreshing bubbly cocktail that is slightly sweet with just the right amount of limey tartness to balance it out. Noting compares to or is as good as juicing your own watermelon & limes, but what really sets this drink apart from all the rest is the Black Lime Sugar rim – definitely do not skip it for both flavor & fragrance!

Equipment: Scale, Bowl, Soda Siphon

Shopping List

1 Each Watermelon
4 Oz Lime Juice
2 Each Lime
1 Bunch Mint

Dry Goods
3 Oz Agave
Sea Salt
Black Lime

Watermelon Soda Base

32 oz | 900 ml Watermelon juiced
4 oz | 115 ml Lime juice

  1. In a mixing bowl add watermelon juice, lime juice, & agave.
  2. Whisk until all ingredients are combined
  3. Add to a soda siphon & charge with one CO2 cartridge.


  • Buy watermelons with yellow spots. They are the melons that have ripened in the field.
  • No liquor for me, but tequila, mezcal, rum, vodka or gin would all work well.
  • Garnish with a watermelon wedge & fresh mint!
  • When using a soda siphon, make sure to store it in the fridge. The liquid will become more carbonated when cold.
  • Some stores sell watermelon juice If you don’t have a juicer.
  • And if you don’t have a soda siphon, just add some bubbles (ie: topo chico, tonic, or seltzer)
