Watermelon Lemonade: With Indian Twist


Some days just call for drinks.

Summer coolers.
Citrus sweet sips.
Saturday was that kind of day.
I don’t want to go on and on today so I am keeping things pretty simple.
I made us one of the best classic summer drinks and I put my own little spin on it… AND, I made it very healthier too!! YEAH!!
Watermelon Lemonade! When life gives you watermelon, make watermelon lemonade. No extra sugar or honey, just watermelon juice, lemon juice, ice and some Indian chaat massala-oh yeah baby.

Wait, do not begin to scratch your heads yet, do not worry, you don’t need any fancy juicer for this recipe. A good old mixer/blender is just fine.

My own spin is use of chaat massala. A detailed post on chaat massala and the recipe is here.Honestly this is one easy peasy summer drink with just 4 ingridents-great for parties and get-togethers. Feel free to make this in advance; pop it up in your fridge and serve for later.
