Chili Lime Watermelon Mocktail
By following along on my Instagram stories, you are probably aware of my new “sober-ish” lifestyle and love for mocktails. What I was unaware of, and have discovered thanks to all of you wonderful people, is how much other people also enjoy mocktails. Because of that, I want to share some of my favorite creations on here so you can all recreate them and virtually enjoy them with me. This is one of my favorites for when I’m feeling ~extra~ that I like to whip up in the summertime. If you are someone who is looking for something a little stronger and not feeling the whole mocktail thing tonight, no worries! Feel free to add either tequila or vodka to this concoction and enjoy.
Ingredients (makes 4):
Watermelon (2 cups – diced)
Club soda (6-8 cups)
Chili lime seasoning (2 teaspoons)
Optional: tequila or vodka
In a blender, blend the watermelon until it has formed a juice like consistency
Use ¼ of the lime and rub around the rib of the glass to dampen it
Pour 1 teaspoon of chili lime seasoning onto a plate and then place the glass topside down so that the seasoning sticks to the wet rim
Fill the cup with ice
Fill the cup ¾ of the way with club soda
Top the ¼ remaining space of the cup with the watermelon juice
Add in a dash of chili lime seasoning and the juice of ½ lime
Place the remaining ¼ of the lime as a garnish on the glass and enjoy!
If you are enjoying this as an alcoholic beverage, top with a shot or two of tequila or vodka and mix well
