Refreshing Watermelon Gin Seltzer: A Summery Delight


Total time7 minutes


The ultimate summer drink: a refreshing Watermelon Gin Seltzer! 🌞🍉 This super simple cocktail is perfect for lounging in the garden on a sunny day.

It’s a fabulous daytime drink, the Watermelon Gin Seltzer is my go-to drink when I’m after, a cocktail that’s also thirst-quenching.

The juicy watermelon bursts with sweet, summery vibes, while the lime adds that zesty kick we all love. The fresh mint brings a refreshing note, perfectly balancing the smooth, botanical gin. Top it all off with bubbly soda water, and you’ve got a drink that’s light, crisp, and oh-so-refreshing.

Be warned: these are so delicious, you might end up doing human pyramids with your friends, convinced you should join the circus. Sounds like a standard Saturday, right? Cheers! 🍹✨
