Watermelon Fizz


By Srinivas Reddy – Director, Food & Beverages, Taj Hotel & Convention Centre, Goa


  • ½ kg seedless watermelon
  • 1 lime
  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • Generous splash of kombucha or sparkling water
  • Crushed ice
  • Watermelon slices for garnish
  • Mint sprigs or edible flowers for garnish


  • Cut the watermelon into medium-sized pieces (carefully removing the rind).
  • Cut the peel away from the lime.
  • Add about half of the watermelon to the juicer, then the mint, followed by the lime and the rest of the watermelon (collecting the juice in a  pitcher).
  • Set the watermelon juice aside. If you wish to strain any remaining pulp, use a fine mesh sieve to do so before pouring your watermelon  juice into glasses.
  • Add crushed ice to your glasses. Pour 2-4 ounces of watermelon juice in a glass. Top with kombucha or sparkling water. Garnish as desired  and serve. Cheers!
