Watermelon Mimosa || Cocktails

Mimosas. The necessity of brunch. A weekend without them is incomplete. But, sometimes you need to change it up a bit. So that is what I did for my summer brunch. It's an easy twist, and it's going to keep your guests drinks cooler, longer, without watering them down.


  • 1 whole watermelon, juiced
  • Small bowl of watermelon chunks
  • Fresh OJ

How to make the cocktail:

  • Create a mixture, 50/50, or the watermelon juice and oj in a pitcher
  • If you have the large sphere or square ice cube molds, grab those, plain trays will work as well, I also used this fun lip shaped silicone mold from the craft store. Fill your trays/molds and freeze.
  • Add one oversized sphere/square, or 3 of the smaller cubes to a glass and top with sparkling wine or prosecco
  • Garnish with a stir stick and a few chunks of the fresh watermelon

As the cubes melt, they add a delicious juice mixture to your cocktail that your guests can freshen up occasionally with a splash of sparkling wine.
