Watermelon Mimosas



I love watermelon and I love mimosas. Pair these two together and Lolly was well pleased!

5 cups of chunked watermelon (use a seedless watermelon if possible, if not, remove seeds!)
2 cups of orange juice
1 T. honey
Sparkling wine, Prosecco or Champagne (well chilled)

Combine watermelon and orange juice in a blender and puree until smooth. Depending on the size of your blender, you may need to blend in batches. Strain to have a really smooth mimosa.

Pour into a pitcher and add the honey and stir to combine. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight if possible.

Before serving, stir to mix completely again. It will separate while resting. Pour into a serving pitcher.

When ready to serve, carefully pour into a champagne flute halfway and carefully pour in the bubbly. And yes, if you're not careful, you may have an overflow of bubbles!
