Lemon Angel: Healing Elixir from Heaven

Click to Mix and Solve
What do you do when life hands you lemons? Make lemonade? How about something more imaginative, exotic? With or without the Absolut Citron, this amazing cocktail from Shoes & Cocktails, “Watermelon Lemonade,” refreshes and revitalizes.

The Ingredients/Recipe:
Serves 3 or 4
Cut ½ of a small watermelon into large chunks (do yourself a favor and get a seedless melon)
Puree in a blender, then strain into a pitcher (you should have enough liquid for a 3 to 1 alcohol ratio)
Add juice of two lemons
Add 3 or 4 shots vodka, preferably Absolut Citron
Mix well, then pour over ice
Garnish with fresh basil

Modifications: I generally prefer things tart rather than sweet. If this recipe is too tart for your liking, I recommend adding more watermelon, or 1 to 2 ounces of triple sec, Cointreau, or some other form of simple syrup. You can also garnish with mint, and/or lemon or watermelon wedges. I prefer basil because it is growing outside my backdoor, and nothing beats that smell in the summer!
Bonus tip: Here’s another perfect opportunity for using flavored ice cubes. Pour watermelon puree into your ice tray and freeze.
Thanks to Shoes & Cocktails for this summer delight!

    I’ve enjoyed your web site the last year. I was wondering how you got started losing weight. Did you exercise every day? And what was the defining moment when you decided you needed to remove the weight?
    Thank you.
