hmm I made a review yesterday but I guess it failed... Anyway this was fantastic! A great sweet but not overly sweet drink, and simple too! I liked it both as a sorbet as well as with the carbonated water. I also found out that mint goes well in this through my garnish lol. It is a great looking drink too, especially using a melon baller to create a bunch of balls in the cup! A great summer drink for sure!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place watermelon cubes and raspberries in blender; process until smooth. Pour juice through a sieve; discard pulp.
  2. Combine sugar and water in small saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly, just until sugar dissolves. Set syrup aside and allow to cool slightly.
  3. Stir syrup and lemon juice into watermelon juice mixture. Pour into freezer container, cover and freeze until firm.
  4. Using ice cream scoop, spoon mixture into tall glasses. Pour 3 to 4 tablespoons strawberry-flavored water over frozen juice in each glass. Serve immediately.
  5. VARIATION: To serve as sorbet, freeze juice mixture in 8 inch square dish. Omit strawberry-flavored carbonated water. Using a small scoop, shape frozen juice mixture into balls and arrange in individual serving dishes.
