Campari-Watermelon Spritz

AT A GLANCE

There are few pleasures sweeter than a refreshing fruity cocktail to beat the heat. Make this ahead and have it chilling in the fridge, ready to go. This recipe makes about 2 litres.

  • 150 gm caster sugar
  • 1.5 kg watermelon (about ½ small watermelon)
  • 150 ml Campari
  • 150 ml gin
  • Juice of 3 limes, or to taste
  • To taste: soda water
01   Stir sugar in 150ml boiling water in a bowl to dissolve (2-3 minutes), then set aside over a bowl of iced water to chill.
02   Process watermelon in a blender until smooth, then combine with sugar syrup and remaining ingredients except soda water and strain through a coarse sieve into a serving jug.
03   To serve, fill tumblers with ice, pour in watermelon cocktail to three-quarters full and top up with soda water.
