So refreshing, so delicious and so easy to whip up in under 5 minutes! Your not-so-ordinary lemonade go to drink! The perfect way to cool down through a heat wave!
When life gives you lemons..you make watermelon mint lemonade! Mmm..
Last week here in Amman was unbelievably hot with a few humid days. People in Amman are used to beautiful summer days, the weather would be usually hot during the day and at night you can enjoy a wonderful evening outdoors that is a little bit chilly. Last week was different! Even at night the weather was still hot and humid. Thank God this is over and this week we’re enjoying a much better weather.
But let me tell you what kept me going through my day during the past heat wave. You guessed it! It was definitely this amazingly refreshing watermelon mint lemonade. Plus, this recipe comes together with just 5 ingredients, a blender and 5 minutes! That’s all what it takes to enjoy the best refreshing drink this summer. I could seriously sip on this all day!
All you need to do is just slice up your watermelon, through it in the blender with some water, lemon juice, mint, sugar or simple syrup and a cucumber (yes I know it’s weird but trust me and don’t skip it). Hit the blender button and that’s it!! You can always turn it to a cocktail by adding a little bit of vodka to your drink but I prefer it this way.
This drink goes perfectly with any summer BBQ party or be a motive to get you through your week!
You probably won’t drink the classic boring lemonade again after trying this.
