I’m all about watermelon beverages at the moment, and here is another one to add to the mix!
This watermelon kiwi cocktail is made with, you guessed it, watermelon and kiwi fruit, and the alcoholic element is white wine. And that is IT.
So fast, so simple, so good!
Use your favorite white wine in this cocktail, be it sweet, medium, dry, or even sparkling.
Make a glassful for yourself to enjoy out in the sunshine, or if you’re throwing a summer party, make a pitcher full to serve guests quickly and easily.

Watermelon Kiwi Cocktail Variations
I like to try and give variations on the cocktails shared on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, and especially turning the cocktail into a mocktail so that non-drinkers (and kids if suitable) can enjoy the drink too!
Watermelon Kiwi Mocktail (non-alcoholic)
So that non-drinkers can enjoy this drink, it’s really simple – leave out the wine and replace it with white grape juice – still or sparkling. Apple juice would also work.
Frozen Watermelon Kiwi Slush
Want to turn this cocktail into a frozen slushie? Easy! Put all the ingredients in a blender with a generous amount of crushed ice – then blend till smooth. Serve with a straw, and watch out for brain freeze! You could do the same with the mocktail version too.
Watermelon Kiwi Wine Party Punch
Want to make this wine cocktail for a crowd? It’s so easy! Just multiply the ingredients for the amount of people you want to serve. The recipe card makes one drink.
Make sure you add plenty of ice to your serving receptacle of choice to keep the cocktail chilled and add peeled slices of kiwi in there too.
You could also skewer little chunks of watermelon and kiwi onto cocktail picks for guests to garnish their glasses.
Speaking of which, place cocktail glasses in the serving area along with an filled ice bucket.
This cocktail recipe is intended for adults of the legal drinking age in your country of residence.
Please drink responsibly. Do not drink and drive.
