WATERMELON MINT LEMONADE
Graze Living’s Hillary Munro serves up two drink recipes that promise to liven up your lives this summer.
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (approx. 4 lemons)
- 5 to 6 cups of watermelon, cubed
- 2 sprigs of mint
- Optional: Vodka
- In a pot on high heat, bring sugar and water to a light boil until the sugar is dissolved and your mixture is clear. Turn off the heat and toss in the sprigs of mint. Allow mint to steep for 15 minutes, then remove it from your simple syrup and discard sprigs. Allow mint-infused syrup to cool for about 10 minutes and then pour into a blender with the watermelon. Blend until smooth and then strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a pitcher to get rid of any unwanted seeds or pulp. Add lemon juice to the pitcher and stir.
- Serve as is over ice, with mint as a garnish or add to a glass of ice filled with 2 ounces of vodka

- 1 cup blackberries (or other berries of your choice)
