Watermelon and lime mocktail

Nothing is more refreshing than the flavours of sweet watermelon and sharp lime on a hot summer’s day. Put your feet up and relax in the shade with this cooling mocktail recipe.

  1. Halve the watermelon and cut the flesh into chunks, discarding any seeds and the rind – you'll need about 450g (15 1/2oz) flesh in total. Transfer to the freezer, in a suitable container, and leave for an hour to get really cold.
  2. Slice 2 thin round slices from each of the limes and set aside for garnish, then squeeze the juice from the remaining limes into a blender.
  3. After an hour, remove the watermelon from the freezer and add to a blender, along with the sugar or honey, chilled soda water and the mint leaves.
  4. Blend until smooth, adding a splash more soda water if you prefer a thinner consistency, then stir and pour into a jug filled with the ice cubes.
  5. Garnish with the reserved lime slices and the mint sprigs. Serve in tall glasses, filled with more ice, if you like.
