  • Sparkling apple cider

  • Keep one slice of watermelon aside as a garnish.
  • Blend a few slices of watermelon in a blender.
  • Fill the bottom third of the glass with the watermelon.
  • Top with sparkling apple cider.
  • Garnish

After blending the watermelon, add around one-third to the bottom of each glass.

The angle of this photograph makes it look less than it actually was.

I often add the garnish first, to minimise the mess. Then top the glass with apple cider. Easy!

This is lovely and refreshing. Exactly as you’d expect – sweet and bubbly. Great for a summer evening.

I made this a second time, and overdosed on the watermelon at the bottom. The flavour can be overwhelming, so definitely keep the watermelon under a third – a quarter may be better.
