Red Bull Summer Edition Watermelon makes for the perfect mocktail

While watermelon is often served at summer barbecues, the Red Bull Summer Edition Watermelon can mix up the perfect mocktail for any occasion.

Watermelon and summer are the perfect pairing. The new Red Bull Summer Edition Watermelon flavor is a bright, refreshing sip that captures the taste of summer. While this beverage might give you some wings to soar through a long summer evening, the beverage is equally tasty in a mocktail.

Even though many people are enjoying their nightly libation, not every occasion is about shaking up another cocktail. When the sun is high and the weather is warm, alcoholic beverages can be dehydrating. Although the two waters for every cocktail is important, a mocktail can be a delightful sip without the alcohol.

One of the reasons why the Red Bull Summer Edition Watermelon works so well in a mocktail is the watermelon flavor. While slightly sweet, the flavor is more refreshing. Whether lounging by the pool or enjoying a barbecue with friends, that watermelon flavor seems to cool everything off.

Recently, Red Bull shared two mocktail recipes that will pique people’s interest. One of the reasons why these mocktails work is the use of fresh herbs. Those flavors play off the sweetness of the watermelon. Ready to shake one up?

Here’s how to make One Hot Summer.

One Hot Summer

Ingredients:

  • 5 fresh basil leaves
  • ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 small serrano pepper wheels
  • 1 ½ cups ice

Blend on high for 20 seconds, pour into cocktail glass and top with Red Bull Summer Edition Watermelon.

 

While it might seem counterintuitive, the spice from the serrano peppers actually has a cooling effect. Overall, this mocktail is sweet, yet spicy. Whether paired with some tacos or ribs, the drink will have everyone wanting seconds.

Another Red Bull mocktail is the Seas of Summer. Here is how to make it.

 

Seas the Summer

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 jicama logs
  • 6 cilantro or mint leaves
  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice
  • A pinch of salt

Blend on high for 20 seconds, pour into cocktail glass and top with Red Bull Summer Edition Watermelon.

 

Watermelon and mint are a classic combination. The unusual part of this mocktail is the jicama logs. It adds a touch of savory without making it like salad.

Truthfully, this cocktail would be perfect with a tuna poke or a spicy noodle salad. In some ways, there are many possible pairings.

Whether you try one of these mocktails or prefer to drink the Red Bull Summer Edition Watermelon on its own, watermelon is a summer favorite. Even if the backyard parties are a little more tame this year, watermelon is always in fashion.
