Today it is one of the hottest days of the year, if not THE hottest day! 33 degrees C (84F)  in NYC but due to humidity the weather man tells me it feels like 40 (104F). And I believe him! So to cool down what better than drink a refreshing drink, in my case a watermelon cocktail.

Watermelon cocktail

Watermelon cocktail

For one cocktail:
6 cl vodka
100 mL fresh watermelon juice
50 mL Ginger Ale
1-2 slices of lime
Squeeze of lime wedge
Ice

In a suitable glass add ice cubes, 1-2 slices of lime
Pour over vodka, juice, squeeze from one lime wedge
Top off with ginger ale
Stir and enjoy!

And of course can you omit the vodka for a refreshing mocktail!

Watermelon Juice

For fresh watermelon juice, if you like me don’t have a juicer but a mixer, I just threw the pieces into the mixer, mixed on high power, and then strained to get the juice!

And if you have a big watermelon like I did, you will have some pieces to snack on too!

Remember Life is too short to not drink and eat well!
Enjoy!
