Watermelonade


         Adding a little lemon juice to many fruit juices gives a nice taste to the juice, in fact it is way of increasing the sweetness of a juice without actually adding more sugar. But for today's watermelonade, I didn't add lemon juice to the watermelon juice, instead I added some frozen water melon cubes to the regular lemonade, this made it more interesting..

Need To Have 
  • Watermelon Pieces - 1 cup
  • Lemon -1 
  • Sugar - as desired
  • Water - 1 to 2 cups



Method
         Blend the watermelon pieces in a blender to get the juice, you can use this juice just like that or strain and use it. Pour the juice into ice cube trays and freeze them. Then squeeze the lemon juice, add the water and the sugar, mix well and chill it. To serve, pour the lemonade, top with the watermelon cubes, the dissolving watermelon cubes will start making the lemonade pink

Note
I didn't add any sugar to the watermelon cubes, it was sweet enough, if needed add some sugar.
Also you can add some ginger while blending the watermelon, this will give a nice kick to the drink.
Increase or decrease the amount of water for the lemonade, depending on the sourness of the lemon.

  6. Haha, I like the name you've given to it!

    I also like freezing the juice itself as cubes. I do it with lemon juices. Ice cubes dilute the beverage over time, but the frozen cubes keep the taste alive.
