This is not a sponsored post, I just happen to be super in love with bubly sparkling waters. The inspiration for this recipe was actually the bubly water itself. Sometimes when I don’t have direction on my future blog posts I just go to the store and wait and see if my surroundings inspire me. (Ok, that just sounded a lot like I am some “ar-teest” but it’s much to the contrary.)
It’s really just that my brain sometimes gets overwhelmed when I pressure it to make a decision. Like…
answer quickly, what’s your favorite song? Me: uhhhh… I don’t know any songs, ever made, by any artist!!)
So it’s best if I let loose and just see what happens. I say all of this to say, on this one fine weekend, a few weeks back, I was walking into Kroger. I stopped at the sanitizing wipes station to clean the handle thingy of the shopping cart. And as I was standing there, I see this cute display of smiling multi-colored sparkling water boxes. OH, HELLO BABY! I said, in my toddler voice. These are so darling I just want to buy every flavor. I knew they would be great! The brightly colored packaging told me so 🙂
I bought three flavors, lots of various fruit, then spent a few (tipsy) hours trying to create a recipe that was “just right”. And there you have it, a star was born! I present to you, the most refreshing summer cocktail – that you can literally down without a second thought, my bubly™ Sparkling Watermelon Peach Cocktail.
bubly™ Sparkling Watermelon Peach Cocktail
- 2-3 wedges watermelon, muddled
- 2 peaches, muddled
- 1/2 cup prepared simple syrup
- 3 cups grapefruit juice (for freezing into ice cubes)
- 2 cans grapefruit bubly™ sparkling water
- 6oz premium vodka (I used Tito's)
- balled watermelon and peach slices for garnish
|In an ice cube tray, pour grapefruit juice and freeze until solid cubes. Freeze serving glasses ahead of time for most refreshing results! |
When ready to serve, add 1-2 spoonfuls of muddled fruit into the bottom of each glass. Top each with 2 tablespoons of simple syrup, grapefruit ice cubes, then vodka. Fill the rest of the glass with Grapefruit bubly™ Sparkling Water.
Top the glass with balled melon and peach slices. Enjoy!
** Note: you can also choose a different flavor of bubly™ Sparkling Water and pair that with a complimenting ice cube flavor (lemonade ice cubes for lemon bubly™, etc)
** Note: alternately, you can double recipe, pour all ingredients (except bubly™) into a pitcher. Serve in glasses and top off with bubly™
