Refreshing, Super Fast Summer Cocktail

I recently made this wonderfully refreshing drink as a pre-dinner drink on one of the first warm spring evenings of the season. We sat outside and enjoyed the balmy air, even my little ‘almost’ five year old guest Lexi loved it.

If you like this drink with a little alcoholic pizzazz, just add a tot of ice cold vodka.


  • 1/4 of a large watermelon, cooled in the fridge for at least 2 hours
  • juice of one lemon
  • grated ginger to taste
  • 1/2 cup of ice cubes
  • optional: a tot of iced vodka per person


  1. place all ingredients into a blender, preferably a power blender
  2. run on high until smooth
  3. pour into glasses
  4. serve immediately or keep in fridge till ready to serve (no longer than 30 minutes)
