As summer winds down, it's time to hit the produce section for the last of the season's ripe, fresh watermelon. It's perfect in cubes or right off the rind — but for a great alternative to store-bought sodas, try this Watermelon Orange Fizz. It's a quick and easy recipe from our friends at Purple Asparagus.

Watermelon and Orange Fizz

2 cups of chopped watermelon
2 small oranges, peeled chopped coarsely
2 cups soda water
2 tbsp. sugar (optional)
Ice cubes

Blend watermelon with oranges until smooth. Strain juice and add ice and soda water.

HSC thanks Purple Asparagus for this great, simple and seasonal recipe!
