Watermelon Refresher

Looking for a refreshing drink for those hot spring and summer days. Try this delicious refresher and you won’t be disappointed.

 

Prep time 10 mins |   Serves 6

Ingredients:
1 small seedless watermelon (pixie is a good variety for this)
7 cups of water
2 Tbsp honey (optional)
1 lime + a few sprigs of mint for ganish

Method:
1. Cut the watermelon in half, and then take one piece and cut it in half again.
2. With the quarter pieces, cut away the rind and put the flesh into a blender with the water and add the honey (if using). Blend until liquid is opaque and no chunks remain.
3. Strain into a pitcher, add ice, a few slices of lime and some mint, and serve.

Cook’s notes:
If you don’t drink it all at once, remove the lime after a few hours, or the bitterness of the rind will seep into your juice. For a spiked recipe add an ounce of gin, vodka or St. Germaine elderflower liqueur (my favourite!)
