After the afternoon thunderstorm, as usual, it got very hot and humid. We needed something that was refreshing, and so in came the Watermelon Mocktail. 🙂 I picked up some Watermelon from a small Turkish Supermarket we have in our area and it just so happened that the Watermelon was from Greece!! how about that!!
How the weather has changed. I remember when we first moved to NL the summers were wet and chilly…but 8 years later the weather has changed to higher temperatures climbing into the 40s and higher…Hot Hot Hot!! We had temps in the high 30’s back in May. We did have a low spell after that but now I guess finally having summer weather.
Some may have not heard of Grenadine Syrup…so it basically is made from pomegranate juice, sugar, and water. I read the other day that they are now using blackcurrant juice instead of pomegranate juice. I was not able to find pomegranate so I used a store-bought Grenadine Syrup for the Mocktail. But using the original fruit definitely makes a huge difference.
So, if Summer weather is in your area, country, region I think you just find this Watermelon Mocktail a delicious surprise. A very simple recipe that you can prepare in less than 10 minutes. Super delicious and solo colorful 🙂
