Watermelon Basil Bellini


  • 2 cups chilled watermelon, chopped
  • lime, juiced
  • basil leaves
  • 3 Tbsp simple syrup, or to taste
  • 12 oz chilled sparkling wine (we used House Bubbles) or seltzer


  1. Add the watermelon to a blender. Pulse until smooth. Pour through a strainer if desired.
  2. In a pitcher, gently muddle the basil leaves with the lime juice. Add the watermelon juice, stir, and taste. Add simple syrup and sparkling wine. Give it a stir and serve.

Make these for a group by doubling or tripling the recipe! Taste the watermelon before adding the simple syrup–you’ll want to adjust depending on the sweetness of the fruit.
