This super easy watermelon ginger sparkling water recipe is one of my favorites. I love bubbles in my water. I bought my first watermelon of the season yesterday and it’s amazingly delicious. It will be perfect for this easy watermelon ginger sparkling water recipe. It’s going to make a perfectly sweet and spicy sparkling water.
I make this recipe at least once a week during watermelon season, it’s such a special treat after a winter of really bad or no watermelon. + it has the added benefit of being a healthy alternative to soda or a cocktail. A great mocktail for your next get together.
