Summer Is Not Over!
Hello everyone. I hope you are doing well.
This does not happen often, but I am posting two recipes today. First of all, with just a few weeks of official summer left, I wanted to squeeze few extra summer ideas. Secondly, I couldn’t just wait to show you one of the ideas how to use this Watermelon Syrup. By the way, this syrup recipe (More like the concept) is terrific. Why? You don’t need to cook it; it’s a cold process watermelon syrup. The result? So refreshing and aromatic, and most importantly, does not have an artificial aftertaste.
While fall days are approaching, the weather is still warm and even hot sometimes. Besides, the season of picnics and gilling is not over yet. That being said, refreshing lemonades are still appropriate until at least Labour Day, right?
To enjoy this Watermelon Lemonade, you will need to make this Watermelon Syrup first. Please note it takes at least 12 hours to make it, so plan accordingly.
Rather than that, it’s a breeze to make. You will need water, lime (or lemon), fresh mint, and ice cubes. Simply combine, chill, and enjoy! This lemonade is quite sweet (As you can expect from watermelon), so balance it out with lime or lemon juice.
In fact, you can easily turn this lemonade into… a cocktail by adding some alcohol like vodka or rum. How does this sound now, eh?
