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.
