Watermelon Mint Limeade
Mint is the only herb we aren’t growing from seed, so we’ve already got enough of it to garnish drinks with–today, we’re mixing it up with watermelon and lime for a delicious, alcohol-free refreshment!
Water melon Mint Limeade
8 cups chopped seedless watermelon
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
Mix 1 cup each of water and sugar in a container; shake until combined. Add mint and steep for 24 hours. Purée watermelon in blender with lime juice until smooth; add mint syrup to taste. Transfer into a pitcher and chill until ready to serve. Pour over ice and garnish with fresh mint.
Notes: Mint syrup does require a little patience–or a trip to your local store–but it’s worth it, and delicious in mojitos, tiki drinks and juleps, too. To give this cocktail a kick, just add a 1/2 cup of vodka or tequila–cheers!
