Refreshing Prosecco & Tequila Watermelon Cocktails

Refreshing Prosecco & Tequila Watermelon Cocktails | The perfect healthy summer cocktail with no added sugar!

As this is a blog not only on wellness and food but also balance, I thought I’d share one of my favourite cocktails with your guys – this watermelon cocktail made with tequila and Prosecco!

This is definitely one that my friends loved helping with the taste testing. When you invite friends around for the simple purpose of drinking cocktails for a blog it makes them very happy indeed.

I’ve had a few of you ask me if a drink, and the answer is yes, I do. I love a good glass of wine, and even a cocktail or two on occasions. I try and keep it as “clean” as possible simply because it usually means the hangover won’t be as brutal. No one wants a hangover and a sugar crash.

Since the watermelon is refreshingly sweet, I feel there is absolutely no need for extra sweetness. If you disagree, then by all meals add some honey, maple syrup or stevia.
