Summer has arrived and watermelons are available in abundance here..I love watermelon a lot, sometimes I am totally amazed how a massive fruit contains 98% of water stored in its fruity flesh..And in addition to this, these fruits arrive just on summer time when we need to have lots of water..God has made each and every thing in this world for a reason..Right!!
Ok now coming to this drink..I actually have a Refreshing Watermelon Juice recipe in my blog, that is a drink which we find here all over the roadside..I used to have that all day before..But after I came across this recipe it became my latest favorite..I skipped the alcohol part used in this recipe, since I don't DRINK…But if you are making for a person who need a intense kick in their fizzzzz, you can pour a shot or two of vodka..This recipe calls for melon vodka, but you could use whatever floats your boat.
Try to use the last drop of summer by filling your tummy with all those seasonal fruits and also give this a shot and let me know what you think………..Happy Summer..
