Watermelon Party Dishes

Summer is well under way, and there is nothing more refreshing to enjoy at this time of year than a juicy slice of watermelon. So much so, we've been picking out lots of quirky ways to incorporate colourful watermelon into an alternative party theme for your summer garden parties.

So to accompany your watermelon party decorations, balloons and all the other party essentials you will need, don't forget the food! We've been busy sourcing all the most delicious recipes using our summer fruit favourite. From alternative BBQ dishes, to fizzy summer cocktails, to frozen ice treats! 

Watermelon & Ginger Sweet Cocktail
Use fresh chunks of watermelon to mix up this refreshing summertime drink. Add your favourite tipple to make it a more grown up cocktail.

Scallop and Watermelon Kebabs
We think these would make an excellent starter or serve up as a healthy alternative grilled dish at any BBQ this summer to impress your guests.

Watermelon, Cucumber & Feta Salad
Create this refreshing and alternative salad for any garden party or to accompany a BBQ this summer. It's one of those recipes that you would never think to put those ingredients together yourself, but the flavour actually work so well.

Watermelon & Mint Fizz
A fan of Prosecco? Then this fruity summer cocktail is for you!

Watermelon & Raspberry Lemonade
Or mix up a batch of this super fruity lemonade to cool you down on a hot afternoon. This recipe is also a great way to get the kiddies enjoying a healthy portion of one of the five a day too.

Grilled Peach & Watermelon Kebabs
Another way to enjoy grilled watermelon on skewers, but this time is a decidedly more desert kinda style. Certainly another to add to the BBQ menu this Summer we think. 

Kiwi, Coconut and Watermelon Ice Lolly
Bursting with fruity flavour, this ice lolly recipe is certainly one we are trying this summer. Get the recipe and find out the secret ingredient to create those watermelon seeds too!

So will you be trying out any of these fruity watermelon based recipes this summer? Who thought watermelon could get much better!
