Nothing tastes like summer like Melonade. Kids love it, and so do I. This juice is so refreshing and is all natural sugar. Great to take to the beach, on a picnic, served pool-side or as a wonderful wake-up drink on the patio on a Saturday morning.
- 1 watermelon
- juice of 1-2 lemons
Cut melon into chunks and blend well in food processor or use a juice extractor. Pour juice through a metal sieve into a jug to get out excess pulp and seeds. Add lemon juice to taste. Refrigerate until well chilled. Stir well and serve over ice.
I really enjoyed this with a splash of Grey-Goose at my pool party this week. It felt so posh served in a martini glass.
Also enjoy this juice with a sprig of fresh mint or a sprinkle of black pepper which brings out a new flavour.
This recipe makes nice popsicles. Do not put juice through the sieve, remove any seeds, pour into moulds and freeze. Ice cubes made with melonade add an extra sparkle to a tall glass of Perrier or San Pellegrino water.
I have used cantaloupe and honeydew melon to make this juice, which again is so amazing over ice. Also, a combination of all three melons make a tastefully terrific drink. Ahh, the dog days of Summer! Enjoy the flavour!
