Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 8 to 10 drinks

Ingredients

  • 1 quarter of a large watermelon peeled and cut in small pieces, about 5 cups of fruit
  • 2 cups orange juice from 6 large oranges
  • 1 bottle of chilled champagne cava, prosecco or other sparkling wine
  • Optional: Sugar or honey to taste based on sweetness of the fruit
  • Fresh mint leaves to garnish

Instructions

  • Blend the watermelon chunks with the orange juice until you have a smooth mix. Taste and add sugar/honey if needed.
  • Strain the watermelon orange mix.
  • Chill the watermelon orange mix in the refrigerator until ready to prepare the drinks. If you have time prepare and chill the juice mix overnight, then strain it again before serving. This helps prevent the mimosas from overflowing.
  • Pour the watermelon orange mix into champagne flutes, about half full.
  • Add the champagne or other sparkling wine, pouring it gently to avoid from making a bubbly mess.
  • Stir gently and garnish with a fresh sprig of mint.

Notes

For a non-alcoholic version you can either leave out the champagne or replace it with a sparkling limeade/lemonade or sparkling water.
