Hiya Beauties,

How is your weekend going?? Can you believe it is April already and I have still not working on things I have planned for this year. Well nothing new in that. But even then isn’t this year rushing so fast. And top it off the heat in India is killing me!!!! It is so hot in the mornings, afternoon, evening , at nights. Oh lord!!!!

So to escape this heat I wanted to learn to prepare some nice mocktails which will taste good and keep the heat away for sometime at least. I had gone to Barbeque Nation this Wednesday and I tried a watermelon+ basil mojito in their menu and instantly fell in love with it. Cut to today I thought I will try it out at home with few changes and it turned out to be so good. Read on to know the recipe!!!

What you need:
For 1 serving of Glass

  • 1 cup of cubed watermelon
  • 5-6 mint leaves
  • 1/2 wedged lemon
  • Sparkling water/ Carbonated water
  • 1/2 t-spoon sugar( optional)
  • Ice

How to prepare:

Start by peeling off the lemon peel and slicing it . I peeled it off to remove the bitter taste. But it is your choice. Add the mint leave and lemon wedge in a container or a sturdy glass and lightly bruise them with a pestle just enough to squeeze out the juices.
Blend the watermelon cubes in a blender or juicer and add the juice to the lemon and mint.
Add carbonated water/sparkling water as per the quantity you want.
Throw in some ice. And your mocktail is ready to be sipped.
If you feel your  mocktail needs to be tad bit sweeter you can add sugar or else skip it.
There you have it simple and refreshing mojito for the summers!!!
