Sure, it might be the first day of fall, but I think that is all the more reason to make a Watermelon Spritz and to soak in the last of the warm weather. There is something magical about the last days of summer, and I firmly believe that the sunsets are the best this time of year. So mix up a spritz, head outside, and savor every minute.

This Watermelon Spritz was inspired by my love of spritzes, and by a message that my friend Jenn sent me. She was vacationing in California with her husband and she had a Watermelon Spritz at her hotel and loved it! This really means something since she is usually a beer kinda chick (one of the reasons why we get along so well!).

Obviously, I had to come up with my own watermelon spritz recipe. I experimented a little, and ended up with a simple three ingredient recipe. You just need to mix watermelon juice, prosecco, and limoncello together to make this cocktail.

You can mix up just two spritzes, or you can make a full pitcher. If you want just two, buy a mini bottle of prosecco. To make a pitcher use a full 750 ml bottle. A full pitcher is enough for 8 cocktails.

I couldn’t find watermelon juice at Whole Foods, so I just put chunks of watermelon in a food processor. You could use store bought watermelon juice instead. Sometimes grocery stores do carry it.
