Hello again, dear buddies. Hope you are having a great start to your weekend. So I am back with another summer special recipe. It’s a cold, fruity beverage, the Watermelon Gingerade.

Watermelons, especially the red ones, are so very refreshing. Their flavor, sweetness, and color will make you go crazy for it during the scorching summers. That’s what lends this drink it amazing bright red color. For some flavor, I have added freshly extracted ginger juice. And a dash of fresh lemon juice for the tang. This is a sugar-free recipe. Why would one want to add sugar to the natural fruit juice and snatch its wholesomeness away?

Now let’s get started with the recipe of Watermelon Gingerade. For the purpose of measurement, 1 cup = 250 ml. This recipe yields one serving.

NOTETo avoid adding sugar, make sure the watermelon is ripe and sweet. This drink is supposed to be served chilled. You can add crushed ice to it if you want. But I didn’t want to dilute its goodness. Nor can this juice be kept for longer. I recommend immediate consumption. So I simply kept the watermelon in the fridge before cutting it open. It was nicely chilled to the core.

  • At this point, the juice is pulpy. Personally, I feel the strained juice tastes better and has a much smoother texture. So, strain the juice.
