Ingredient Notes

  • Be sure to use fresh watermelon slices for this beverage. You want it to taste its best, which is why using fresh watermelon works best.
  • Although the mint leaves are optional and work best as a garnish, they’re a great addition to this alcoholic beverage. The flavor of the mint goes great with the sweetness of the watermelon.
  • If you can’t find mint leaves, you can add a pinch of mints from a mint tea bag or even add a small drop of mint oil into the beverage.

How to Make the Malibu Watermelon Seltzer

  • Prep the glass: Fill a glass with ice cubes.
  • Prepare the cocktail: Pour in two shots of Malibu Watermelon Rum and top with watermelon seltzer/sparkling water.
  • Garnish: Place mint leaf on top and a slice of watermelon for garnish. Cheers!

Tips for Making the Malibu Watermelon Seltzer

  • Pour your shots into the glass or cup with ice before adding anything else to it. If you’re adding the shots last, you may only taste the alcohol instead of the sweetness of the watermelon.
  • Don’t forget to add ice. This beverage tastes best when served cold over a cup or glass full of ice.
  • Prepare the drinks on the spot when making them for yourself or others. If you let them sit for too long with ice, they’ll end up watered down.

Can I Make the Malibu Watermelon Seltzer in Advance?

If you’re going to make the Malibu Watermelon Seltzer in advance, don’t add ice. You can prepare the ingredients in a pitcher and leave them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve, pouring everything over ice and garnishing with mint leaves and fresh watermelon slices.

If you make these beverages too far in advance with the ice in them, the ice will eventually melt, leading to a watery beverage.

FAQs

Can I use watermelon chunks instead of slices? If you prefer to use chunks, chop your watermelon into pieces instead of slicing it down. It doesn’t matter too much, as long as you’re adding some fresh watermelon to the beverage.

What if I can’t find the Malibu watermelon rum? If you can’t find the Malibu brand of watermelon rum, look for any other brand that offers this flavor. It’s important to have the watermelon rum that gives this beverage such an incredibly refreshing and delicious taste.

Which type of ice should I use? You can use any kind of ice that you have access to, such as crushed ice or cubed ice. It all depends on your preference.

How many servings does this recipe make? The recipe counts as one serving. However, you can make as many servings as you’d like, especially if you’re preparing these beverages for a group of people.

Do I have to add mint leaves to these drinks? While you don’t have to add mint leaves to the beverages if you don’t want to, it’s an excellent addition. It might sound like a strange combination, but the mint and watermelon flavors pair perfectly with one another to create a unique taste that you’ll love.
