Last week, on one of my what-seems-like-daily trips to Whole Foods, I saw a huge watermelon and decided it had to come home with me. Armed with a backpack, I managed to get it home in one piece at which point I was challenged with what to do with it.
After taking stock of my fridge, I decided to make a watermelon, ginger and lime spritzer, which is perfect for the hot and humid days left in the summer
Here's what you need:
- 3 T ginger juice (I ran a 4 inch piece of ginger through my juicer)
- Juice of 1 lime
- 4 cups of watermelon
- 1 L of seltzer water
Here's what you do:
- In a blender, combine the ginger juice, lime juice and watermelon. Blend for about 2 minutes or until everything is well combined.
- Combine the fruit juice with the seltzer and garnish with mint if you desire.
