Watermelon cooler/Watermelon strawberry juice/ Summer cooler

Pink juice for a red hot day!

It is sizzling hot out here and it is baking us for a week in this wide open oven. The temperature climbs to mid 30ºC and with the humidity it feels like mid 40°C. So I decided to relax and proceed at a comfortable pace. It is the right time to keep cool and get into water at the slightest provocation. Of late, playing with the hose in the act of watering the garden is my favourite evening sport and spraying others unintentionally is extra fun.

Sitting in the backyard and enjoying a cool drink would be the next alternative. Any parched tongue would thank a sip of this melon cooler. Today, I made a jug of watermelon, strawberry juice with a touch of lemon and immediately surrendered to its magic!

All senses woke up after a breakfast with this watermelon drink and kept me going for the rest of the day! I am sure it is a good cleanser and rehydrates in this humid scorcher. Mid June to August is the melon season and it contains most vitamins and minerals we need. It keeps our heart and bones in good cheer. Recent studies also reveal that it relaxes blood vessels and provides a Viagra effect. That is very interesting! So without any delay the blender got into action. As I love watermelon for its sweetness no sugar was added. It can be watered down with ice cubes or concentrated with frozen watermelon pieces.

      Yes, I have settled in the new house except for some odd things lying around. Enjoying the beautiful backyard…thanks to the previous owner.
      I heard monsoon is in full blast! I can totally picture the downpour in Mumbai as I was stuck at the airport for 3 days during the 2005 July monsoon flooding…long story!
      Stay warm and dry!
