Watermelon and lemon are two of the most thirst-quenching ingredients I know. Together, they′re unstoppable.
After a long, hot day in Brooklyn: a 3-year old′s birthday party, running through park sprinklers, grocery shopping for the following week, I needed this drink to cool me down. Trust me, this drink will quench your thirst.
4 cups seedless watermelon chunks
¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, or to taste
2 tablespoons superfine sugar, or to taste
1 cup ice cubes
2 cups cold seltzer
Mint leaves, for garnish
Place the watermelon, lemon juice, sugar and ice in a blender. Cover and process until smooth. Strain and discard the pulp, then transfer to a serving pitcher and top with the seltzer. Pour into glasses and top with some mint leaves.
