Hey its time for the bike rides around the lake, and popcorn and iced drinks at outdoor movies on stretched screens!! Farmer's markets, summerfests, music in the park, and picnic lunch!! Mmmm - roll out those lazy crazy hazy days of summer ... you'll wish that summer could always be here.... Yup Nat King Cole had it quite right and I do wish that it could always be summer. But hey, who am I kidding? I live in the land of the tornado and 100+ inches of snow in the winter!!!! So here's something to make summer more memorable - the sweetness of beautiful ripe watermelon captured is a freezing cool drink.
21/2 cups fresh watermelon, chilled, seeded, and cubed
1/2 cup crushed ice
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp mint leaves
A few extra sprigs mint
Pinch of Salt
- Place all ingredients in a blender and give a spin.
- Pour into tall glasses, garnish with mint leaves, and serve immediately.
Slurp this delicious cool drink at your leisure!!
