Hi everyone!! This post is going to start without too much chatter chatter chatter by me. Because it is too hot to type so many words. I mean I can barely even breathe in this heat,but this drink is something that cannot be passed without sharing with you guys.
The whole credit for this super duper cooler goes to my Aai. She is a great cook and is not afraid to experiment in the kitchen . Of course her experiments are also a hit most of the times, so I think it's a good idea to take full benefit of them put the recipes on my blog for you.
So here goes:
For around 10 glasses of this drink you need:
Juice of 1 large watermelon :
(Do not bother to remove each and every seed ,just cut the fruit into large chunks, put them in your blender and work the blender on the "pulse " mode. This produces juice without crushing the seeds. Later just strain the juice to get all the seeds out of the way)
One and half inch piece of ginger grated or pounded finely
1.5 tspn salt
A little sugar if the juice is not very sweet
500ml bottle of Sprite or 7 Up
Mix the juice ,ginger, salt and optional sugar all together and leave to chill in the fridge until its time to serve. This helps the flavour of ginger to infuse into the drink.
When serving strain the juice again to take out the ginger .
Fill each glass up to half with this juice and top it up with delicious chilled fizzy Sprite or 7 Up.
That's it ! Your Fizzy Watermelon Cooler is ready to enjoy!! People normally want a second helping of this ,so make plenty :))
