Watermelon flavored cocktails in glasses on outdoor tables

Watermelon can be a tricky flavor to come by in cocktails and an even trickier element to work with. That's where our watermelon CBD drinks come in. With a strong, juicy watermelon flavor, these CBD beverages can take your watermelon cocktails up a notch- even if there isn't a lot of fresh watermelon around to pair it with. Below are 5 cocktail recipes to get you started.

Sparkling Watermelon Punch

This punch comes with its own bowl-the watermelon itself. With the refreshing flavors of watermelon and mint combined with the effervescence of a sparkling watermelon element, you have some of the key elements of summer in each sip.

Ingredients

  • 1 Small Watermelon – Mini Watermelons and "Sugar Babies" of 5-7 lbs are ideal
  • Mint Leaves
  • 4 oz Vodka
  • 2 oz Lime Juice, Fresh or Natural Strength
  • 1 oz Simple Syrup, Plain or Flavored
  • Cubed Ice
  • Sparkling Wine or Our Sparkling Watermelon CBD Drinks
  • Additional Lime, Mint Leaves, or Candied Watermelon Rind for Garnish

Instructions

Cut the watermelon in half and carve out one half. Add the watermelon chunks that were removed from this half to a blender. Add mint leaves. Blend until smooth. Strain the puree into a container using a fine-mesh strainer. Discard any solids remaining.

To the watermelon “bowl” add cubed ice, vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, and the watermelon and mint puree. Stir to combine. Top with our sparkling watermelon CBD drink or sparkling wine.

Sparkling Watermelon Margaritas

Few things are as much of a callback to summer as margaritas and watermelon. Where the recipe above was refreshing and relied on the availability of fresh watermelons, this recipe can be used with bottled watermelon juice and one of our watermelon CBD drinks. This way, you can enjoy a watermelon drink in the heat of summer with what's in your pantry or in the depths of winter, when you need something to lighten up the mood.

Ingredients

  • 3.5 oz Watermelon Juice, Fresh or Natural Strength
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • 1.5 oz Tequila
  • 2 oz Sparkling Watermelon CBD Drink
  • Strawberries, Lime, and Margarita Salt for Garnish

Instructions

If using the salt, apply it to the rim first. Fill a shaker with ice and combine watermelon juice, lime juice, and tequila. Shake heavily and pour into the prepared glass. Top with one of our sparkling watermelon CBD drinks, to the desired level, and garnish.

Sparkling Watermelon Mojito

The combination of mint and watermelon is a classic. Even for people who aren't fans of melon or watermelon flavors, mint can make this an appealing cocktail addition- it transforms the watermelon flavor into something a bit sweeter and cooler. Similar to Sparkling Watermelon Punch, this recipe for a sparkling watermelon mojito is a great use of watermelon and mint when no fresh watermelons are on hand.

Ingredients

  • Mint Leaves
  • .5 oz Lime Juice, Fresh or Natural Strength
  • .5 to 1.5 oz Simple Syrup, to Taste
  • 3 oz Watermelon Juice, Fresh or Natural Strength
  • 1.5 oz White Rum
  • 3 oz or so of Sparkling Watermelon CBD Soda or Sparkling White Wine
  • Ice

Instructions

Muddle the mint in your prepared glasses. Add lime, simple syrup, watermelon juice, and rum. Stir and top with ice. Pour in your fizzy drink of choice. Serve.

Strawberry and Watermelon Sangria

Sangria is almost always synonymous with summer. Especially so when they lead with watermelon.

This ice-cold and tangy drink is just about guaranteed to perk up your day, whether the sun is shining or you're stuck indoors.

Ingredients

  • 1 750ml Bottle Pinot Grigio
  • 1 C Vodka (Strawberry or Watermelon Flavor is Preferred)

    Blend strawberries, watermelon juice, and lemon juice until smooth. Strain to remove seeds and pulp. Discard seeds and pulp. Pour the resulting puree and juice into a pitcher. Add wine, vodka, triple sec, and simple syrup. Add fruit. Stir just to combine.

    Pour this into glasses filled with ice until they are 2/3 full. To finish the cocktail, top with our sparkling watermelon CBD drink or one of our other, refreshing fruit-flavored CBD beverages.

    Spicy Frozen Watermelon Bellini
