Don’t these fizzy watermelon floats look like heaven in a glass?! Get ready to feel refreshed on a hot summer day!

Or a double serving for yourself… I won’t blame you. They’re THAT good! These babies were part of the watermelon 3 ways video on the YouTube channel. Check it out below or keep scrolling to get the recipe for these fizzy watermelon floats.
