2 leaves fresh mint
1 teaspoon simple syrup
4 oz. Smirnoff Spiked Sparkling Seltzer Watermelon
8 oz. watermelon lemonade
In a tall glass, add the mint leaves and simple syrup and muddle to release the mint oils. Fill the glass with ice, then pour in the Smirnoff Spiked Sparkling Seltzer Watermelon, followed by the watermelon lemonade. Stir gently to combine, then garnish with mint and watermelon slices.
Spicy Watermelon Mimosa
3 cups cubed watermelon
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 oz. Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
9 oz. Smirnoff Ice Watermelon Mimosa
Tajin or spicy salt, for rimming and garnish
Add the watermelon and orange juice to a blender and blend until smooth. Juice the lime and stir into the watermelon orange juice. Add the vodka and Smirnoff Ice Watermelon Mimosa and pulse a few more times to combine. Rim two tall glasses with the tajin or spicy salt, then divide the watermelon mimosas between the two glasses. Sprinkle a little extra spicy salt on top of each drink and enjoy!
