Summer heat is very bad here in Vizag. We are drinking copious amounts of juices, smoothies and milkshakes. The other day I made a healthy summer drink, Watermelon Lemonade. Its a wonderful concoction with sweet and sour flavors and quenches our thirst during these sultry summer days. Just some freshly squeezed lemon juice, honey, a dash of salt and of course watermelon juice.
Watermelon Lemonade Recipe
Blend 3 cups of watermelon cubes and strain (if required). Keep aside.
Add 3 tbsps honey, 5 tbsps freshly squeezed lemon juice and 1/4 tsp salt to 3 cups of ice cold water. Add the blended watermelon juice to the lemonade and mix. Serve in tall glasses with ice cubes.
Variation – Add crushed mint leaves, 1/2 tsp chaat masala and 1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder for a desi twist.
