Garnished Watermelon Peach Cocktail

Do watermelon and peach go together?

Watermelon and peach are delicious flavors that compliment one another very well. This drink has a light, fruity flavor that is perfect for the summer season.

Oddly enough, there are concerns that these two fruits can be poisonous when enjoyed together. We would like to reassure you that there is no risk to enjoying peach and watermelon together. Peach and watermelon poison is nothing to be concerned about.

What alcohol goes good with watermelon?

Because watermelon is such a mild flavor, it is very popular in blended and mixed fruit cocktails. Watermelon mixes well with all sorts of liquors including gin, tequila, rum, and of course, vodka.

Originally we didn’t use the peach schnapps. Without the peach schnapps this is a vodka based cocktail with watermelon. The schnapps is a huge improvement in this recipe, so our recipe is adjusted to include it now, giving you a watermelon peach cocktail.

What flavors mix well with watermelon?

Watermelon is a fun fruit to enjoy because it can be paired with so many other flavors and ingredients. Here is a list of our favorite ideas for you to try is you’re looking to play around with the drink recipe.

  • Muddled with fresh mint leaves or basil
  • Use jalapeno for a wonderful spicy element
  • Lime
  • Blood orange
  • Garnished with salt

Watermelon Peach Cocktail Ingredients

Use your favorite store brand watermelon juice and lemon lime soda. It’s easy to create this peach schnapps drink with vodka. The peach liqueur really enhances and balances the watermelon vodka.

Making the juice

The latest version of this drink uses a store bought watermelon juice. That makes this drink extremely quick and easy to build. it also keeps the mess down and you have no blender to clean up.

  1. For the pureed watermelon peach juice you need both a small seedless fresh watermelon and 2 fresh ripe peaches.
  2. Scoop out the flesh of the watermelon and peel the peaches.
  3. Blend them up in a blender and that is your juice.
  4. Add a splash of lime juice to brighten the flavor.
  5. Put some mint leaves down into the drink with the watermelon chunks for garnish to brighten the flavors.
  6. Strain the juice before adding it to your drink unless you want a lot of texture.

How do you serve a Watermelon Cocktail?

Watermelon peach cocktail can be garnished and serve in so many ways, it all depends on your preference and style. We are showing you two very different presentations of this drink.

As a watermelon peach smoothie

  1. Skewer fresh peach and watermelon cubes on a wooden toothpick and lay it across the top a short whiskey glass, crystal scotch or bourbon glass.
  2. Add mint leaves for an extra flourish
  3. A small watermelon wedge on the glass edge
  4. A slice of peach affixed to the glass edge

Take this drink as inspiration and whip together a watermelon peach daiquiri. The alcohol will be a bit different, and the fresh peaches bring a rich tropical flavor.

The sparkling watermelon juice cocktail version lends itself to garnishing the whole glass

  1. We used these 11 oz crystal hi ball glasses
  2. Mint leaves add a nice accent color
  3. Alternating the watermelon cubes with the ice also adds interest to the glass
  4. The cocktail spears are made of bamboo and are fully biodegradable

Other garnish ideas

  1. Seedless watermelon wedge on the glass edge
  2. A peach slice floating in the drink or affixed to the glass edge
  3. Rim your glass with sugar if you want a shimmer on the edge of your summer drink
  4. Square ice cubes
  5. Serve with festive colored straws

Fresh Fruit Puree Variation:

Originally I made this drink with fresh pureed watermelon and peaches. If you wish to make your own fruit juice blend it's very easy.

Here's the Recipe:


  • 1/2 small seedless watermelon (I used a Hermison seedless watermelon)
  • 2 whole peaches


  • Cut up the watermelon and the peaches into chunks.
  • Puree in a blender until they are smooth (add in ice to the blender if you would like)
  • Pour the watermelon and peach blend into a cocktail glass.

If you want a clearer less pulpy juice strain the pulp after you puree the fruit. Use 1/4 Cup of this juice for one cocktail.
