On sweat-soaked sunny days, and long summer nights, nothing beats an ice-cold homemade drink. Though it’s just the start of May, the heat wave is in full swing. This summer, I’m on a mission to try out some innovative homemade drinks using seasonal fruits.
Lemonade – our very own neembo pani – is loved by all. A well-crafted lemonade carries a balance of the sweet and tangy flavors of fresh lemon juice and sugar syrup. I seriously love lemonade, but for me it has to be smooth and without pulp. To achieve this, I use a blender. To add a twist to this conventional formula, I decided to mix in watermelons! Watermelon is a most delightful blessing in summers, and lemons make for a perfect marriage of flavor. It tastes out-of-this-world!
This was my first experiment blending lemonade with fruits. It turned out great, and has been a family favorite this summer – both Ali and my little chap totally love it. It also makes for an ideal thirst quencher for gatherings and iftars this season; delivering the sweetness of melons and the tanginess of lemons. Be sure to try it our this summer!
