I hardly ever order anything but water with lemon when I’m out. For one thing, I don’t drink alcohol (have just never liked the taste) and any drink tends to be pretty expensive. But I while out with family I splurged on a mocktail and wanted to recreate it at home. This came very close and is so delicious and refreshing.

Ingredients in this Mocktail

To start your journey to mocktail heaven, let’s take a closer look at the key ingredients that make up this Watermelon Cucumber Lemon Mocktail:

  • Fresh Watermelon: Known for its high water content and natural sweetness, fresh watermelon serves as the base for this mocktail. It provides the perfect juicy foundation for your drink.
  • Crisp Cucumber: Cucumber not only adds a refreshing and cooling element but also contributes to the mocktail’s overall hydration factor. It’s like a spa day for your taste buds!
  • Lemon Juice: Lemon juice brings a zesty kick to the mocktail, balancing the sweetness of the watermelon and adding a burst of citrusy flavor. Plus, it’s packed with vitamin C.
  • Pineapple Juice: This super delicious juice (see what I used below) adds a lot of the sweetness in this drink. It’s healthy and refreshing, too. Also full of vitamin C.
  • Sweetener (Optional): Depending on your preference, you can add a touch of sweetener like stevia, sugar, or agave syrup to enhance the overall taste. Adjust the sweetness to your liking. I have the biggest sweet tooth of anyone I know and didn’t need anything additional.
