Watermelon Berry Refresher by Alys Bowman

 In Recipe

The watermelon berry is often overlooked on berry picking forays, but it has a sweet subtle flavor. I usually pick what I see around me when I am picking other berries. I find that picking the watermelon berries in late fall yields the best flavor.

For this recipe, you will need to extract the juice and then make a watermelon berry syrup. Follow the instructions listed in the UAF Extension Watermelon Berry publication. 

Watermelon Berry Refresher

3-4 Tablespoons of watermelon berry syrup. Adjust to taste.

Sparkling Seltzer Water. I like Polar Seltzer water in a berry flavor.


For adult beverages add gin.
