The temperature rising high and its becoming tougher by the day to sustain this heat almost throughout India and of course in Texas. The global warming is taking its toll. Though its quite pleasant out here in Bangalore, I’m just worried about my loved ones in Kolkata – almost no rain and the temperature rising above 36 degree celsius almost everyday with the terrifying humidity.

The only way out is to have a loads and loads of fruits – chopped to bite sized pieces or blended to a refreshing juice. Mango and watermelon are the kings of summer. Wherever you go, you’ll definitely get hold of these two at least.

There was a big watermelon lying in my fridge for the last couple of days, and even though the maid chops it into small pieces, am still lazy enough to bite into each piece, separate those hundreds of seeds and savour it. So, thought of a better idea – why not to puree it to a refreshing drink. Here I am gulping on the watermelon juice and writing about it.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of chopped watermelon
  • 2 tablespoon sugar (optional)
  • Pinch of salt

Preparation:

  • Puree the watermelon and strain out the seeds
  • Serve with ice cubes in martini or whiskey glasses

Hot Tips- If you are planning to have this on a weekend, I suggest that you mix a little vodka with it and treat yourself with a watermelon martini.

Health Tips – If you worry about your health a little then watermelon is the best fruit to have. The nutritional fact for watermelon says that it consists of more than 90 percent of water and very less in fat. So, enjoy this summer with watermelons.
