Minty Watermelon Lemonade

Minty Watermelon Lemonade
minty watermelon lemonade

It’s hot! You’re dying for a long, tall, cold drink. Forget about the so-so soda or the same-old iced tea. In just minutes, you can whip up a fruity liquid antidote to beverage boredom that will cool and refresh. This crowd-pleasing watermelon lemonade will slake your thirst and startle your taste buds. When the mercury rises, this is what generally comes to my mind, a soothing cool drink with minty flavor. This is my entry to AFAM-Watermelon (a-fruit-a month) hosted my wonderful Jai & Bee of Jugalbandi.



Source: My own
Cuisine: Global
Preparation time: 5 mins
Serves: 4 people

Ingredients:
1 pound watermelon, ripened
½ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
½ cup sugar
3-4 Mint leaves, crushed

Method:
  1. Cut the watermelon into large big chunks.
  2. Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix well.
  3. If you want, you can sugar the rim of the glass and garnish with a watermelon slice and lemon wheel.
  4. Makes four one-cup servings.
