Wellness Wednesday: Watermelon Popsicle Mimosa

I guess it’s really no surprise that I love me a good cocktail…. and when it’s a healthified (I don’t think that’s really a word, but I kinda like it) version, I love it even more. And this one won’t disappoint. I promise. It’s refreshing, crisp, flavorful, and super easy to make. I’d typically reserve a mimosa for a brunch fête, but this one is too good to reserve for one occasion. I say an evening bbq, a day lounging by the pool, or a fun shower…. okay, it’s pretty much appropriate for any occasion that floats your boat.

Before I get to the good stuff… like how to actually make the drink, I thought I’d take a moment to pay homage to watermelon’s health benefits (to really hammer home why this juice, and thus cocktail, is good for you). So, here it goes. Watermelon has anti-inflammatory benefits. tons of vitamins and minerals, lycopene for heart, skin, + cancer prevention, and helps with blood flow. Sold?

So, here’s how to whip up this little concoction:

Watermelon Mimosa:

Pressed Juicery Watermelon Juice (1 bottle gives you 3-4 popsicles)
Champagne
Popsicle Sticks
Dixi Cups
Tin Foil
Cupcake Baking Tray

Pour juice in the dixi cup about 3/4 full. Cut a strip of tin foil and place over the cup. Place a slit in the middle and stick in the popsicle stick so that it stays straight up. Place in freezer until frozen. When completely frozen, peel off the dixi cup and place the popsicle in a wine goblet (my favorites) and top with champagne. Then sip, converse, and have some fun!

Simple enough, huh?
